Students Take Great Field Trips!

3rd grade field trip to the Cumberland Fair.

The PTA helps to funds school field trips throughout the year, and your support is so important! Here are some special events that have recently taken place with the students:

Grade K: Went to Snell’s Apple Orchard on September 25th. The Snell Family Farm in Buxton does Pick Your Own Apples in September and October, and grows a variety of other fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. This was a great trip!

Grade 3: Visited the Cumberland County Fair on September 29th. They saw draft horses, cattle, sheep and goats, bunnies, chickens, geese, and much more. The kids visited the farm museum, blacksmith, maple syrup house, and saw farm machines.

Grade 5: The fifth graders took a walking field trip to SMCC on September 30th to be inspired by the scenery as word artists. The students used the sights, sounds, and smells of the setting to develop descriptive and creative language for their fictional stories set in Casco Bay.
