Westward, Ho!


Our travels to the Western Territories were less than treacherous and more than exuberant! I overheard many students say, “This is HARD, but it’s so FUN! Our pioneer spirit was challenged and encouraged throughout the day as we attempted to craft and play just as thousands of pioneer children did on the Oregon Trail in the 1840s.

Thank you to our many volunteers who participated before, during, and after the event. I could not do this without you. You have created a memory that will be treasured by every child who joined us. I hope you enjoyed yourself, too.

Pioneer Day is Approaching!

On June 19th, our 2nd grade classes will be stepping back in time to become Pioneers of the Westward Movement.  We will have a full morning of historical activities, crafts, and a pioneer-style snack.  This will be an amazing time of REAL learning about the early days of our country.  Don’t miss out on this very special event.  The cost is only $4.00 to cover the purchase of needed materials.

Parent volunteers are still needed to make this day possible.  High school siblings are welcome, too!
