By Lauren Brasel, Elementary Principal

The fourth and fifth grade classes experienced the annual School in the Wild outdoor classroom trip to Columbia, Tennessee on April 25th - 27th. While there, the students hiked, ziplined, heard scary stories, learned about GPS and forensics, and played the traditional fourth grade vs. fifth grade kickball game. They even got their teachers to eat some tasty chocolate covered crickets! It was a trip the students will truly remember. Here's what some of them had to say about these exciting adventures:

"I had a lot of fun at School in the Wild. We learned about the different groups of water creatures that live in the creek. The different types of energy while zip-lining. Zip-lining was my favorite class. Team building was fun, but required a lot of concentration and trust! I enjoyed being there with my friends." - Jane Claire Gill, 5th grade

"It was the best time ever!" - Emma Jarosemich, 5th grade

"My time at School in the Wild was awesome! We went on a biplane and it was so fun. We had a kickball game, and we won!" - Aidan Vo, 5th grade 

"School in the Wild was so much fun! We learned about water. We did zip-lining. We met a bunch of animals (so cute)!" - Addy McWright, 5th grade 

"It was AWESOME!" - Luke Adams, 5th grade

“I love School in the Wild because we go zip lining! I was really, really scared but my friends were cheering for me, so I knew I could do it!” - Ethan Porter, 4th grade 

“I’m glad we get to go to School in the Wild because it’s a great opportunity to try new things!” - MaKenzie Bledsoe, 4th grade
