Casey's first field trip of his sixth grade year was to Alliance Redwoods. It was two nights and almost three days of fun!! He loved every minute of it. He stayed in a Yurt and all of the meals were served in the cafeteria. The kids played "Infection" in between activities. The outdoor activities were challenging and fun. Casey loved climbing the poles, zip-lining and pretending he was on American Ninja Warrior, but some kids really had to find the courage to climb and scoot off a platform. They encouraged one another. They learned how to be calm and just go for it. They loved the night hike and the naturalists. I am so grateful for these field trips and a bit melancholy that this is Casey's final year at Mission Avenue. This is the last year Casey and Erik will be at the same school together.
