Elementary Camping Trip to Springfield and Cahokia

When we originally posted this picture on Facebook, we had a really great comment posted by Eric Bergman, father of two Elementary students on this trip.  He wrote, “You are fostering my children’s growth to independence and autonomy so well. This year, on their second school trip, my third graders drove all the preparations, did 100% of their packing independently, and came home visibly more self reliant and excited. The guided exploration they get at school has served them well, and instilled a joy in learning.”

Thank you Eric for always writing such great comments about our going-out programs and the trips!
