We had a fantastic time at the Race for Education today! The students loved the race and also enjoyed the delicious snow cones! This week we went on the field trip and discovered many things from the Durham. The students discovered many things about school life, Lewis and Clark, and Native American living. We had a chance to sit and pretend to be students in a school house from the 1800’s. Another part of the trip was learning about Native Americans and we explored their earth lodge house and artifacts. A few pictures from the field trip can be found on the 3A website. SPSL is getting excited to finish the accreditation process by having our official visit on Monday and Tuesday. The accreditation team will be in the school building and also in our room those 2 days. I hope you have a great weekend!
