The 7th grade traveled to Nature's Classroom on October 23rd. We arrived in Silver Bay, New York to rainy and cold temperatures but we were greeted by very excited Nature's Classroom teachers. The students stepped off the bus and into team building activities. The week was spent learning about nature and how to reduce our impact on the environment by reducing food waste, water waste and using environmentally friendly products. The 7th graders also learned to navigate sharing spaces and social situations. They grew in their independence and self-sufficiency. It was great to see our students grow and demonstrate our 4Rs especially responsibility, respect and resourcefulness.
