6th Gr Outdoor Education

Tue, 08/29/2017 - 11:42am


The Outdoor Education Program for our sixth grade class is planned for October 9th through the 11th, 2017 at NorthBay Environmental Learning Center located in North East, Maryland one hour north of Baltimore on the Chesapeake Bay.  Students study science in an exciting, hands-on outdoor setting where there is also a focus on adventure, life skills, and character development.  The lessons take place away from school and are primarily taught outdoors; therefore, we are making special plans to prepare students,

For your convenience, a complete packet of information will be sent home on the first day of school.  As discussed in the spring, of particular interest to many families are the medical forms.  

All forms and paperwork are due no later than Wednesday, September 13, 2017 (medical forms due 9/15). Due to conflicts with Back-to-School events at our feeder schools, we will not hold a separate meeting for parents about Outdoor Education. Instead, we will be reviewing all of the important details at our Back-to-School night on the 14th. Please plan to attend our 'Town Meeting'. 

If you have any questions about this experience, please direct them to Ryan_Pfoutz@hcpss.org or Jere_Abernathy@hcpss.org
