Farm School

Posted by Kelly Conn on 23 Sep 2011

Early Monday morning the sixth grade class embarked on a journey that both took them back in time, and immersed them in the altruistic process of providing for others.

In their three-day Farm School experience, our students tended to livestock, milked cows, chopped firewood, harvested crops, and prepared meals for the community. Though they were all exhausted as they rolled into school Wednesday morning, many wished that they were still working back on the farm.
