It’s a long tradition that near to the start of the year, the middle school students and advisors spend a day outside. Students work to solve game-like problems together, engage in some team races and basically just enjoy getting to know each other.
The lessons can wait: Taking some time to making students feel welcomed back to school is well worth it.
In the afternoon, the students listened to some short stories by Cindy Rylant from a collection entitled Every Living Thing. Then everyone was up and over to an end-of-day advisory for some reflection.
Our Day on the Fields was organized by our PE department: Liza McVey and Jillian Walsh. Our grill master was Steve Mallet, with Tom Cosgrove, our PDS chef, packing up the ingredients for us.Many thanks for helping to make our day such a success.
