6th Grade Overnight
From Monday to Tuesday this week we hosted the entire sixth grade, along with Juli Ann and Zoe and various parent chaperones. It was great fun and there are more stories than I can begin to tell here. Hikes on the land yielded morel mushrooms and sightings of a rare orchid (the showy orchis). Garden work led to weeding and mulching of garlic and asparagus. And animal work included dyeing the wool with Kool-Aid among other things. There was a campfire with Smores, lots of free time to play, and some incredible food (thanks to Zoe for anchoring the kitchen crew!). A big thanks to students, staff and parent helpers for making this a great visit. Also special thanks to Erin D. for making some yummy soup for our lunch.
