Congratulations to this year's Outward Bound team! During the week of May 19-23, eleven 7th and 8th Graders completed a 5-day backpacking, camping and rock climbing peer leadership course. Throughout the expedition, students engaged in outdoor education from sunrise until after sunset along the Appalachian Trail. Despite the rain and various other challenges, students had the experience of their lives!
Ms. McConnell is extremely proud of these individuals for their determination, willingness to overcome obstacles, and their newly attained leadership skills. This year's Outward Bound team consisted of Alexis F., Johnathon S., Kevin S., Seth W., Emma B., Emily C., Janaya F., Jenna G., Oumie S., Jacob S., and Emma S..
