Incorporating a fresh batch of former elementary students with an already-established group of middle schoolers goes better when everyone gets to know each other.
That was the impetus for a pair of early team-building field trips taken by the middle school class.
Working on skills of cooperation, collaboration and communication, the entire group of middle schoolers were able to learn more about each other. That concluded with the Gallup Park trip, which included hiking and kayaking along the scenic Huron River.
Cheryl Blau and Stella Rodriguez serve as the middle school teachers, with Dennise Mazurek as teaching assistant.
