5-6 – Trips

Our class begins and ends the year with a class trip. The fall trip allows the class to build community and an identity as a group before academic work in the classroom begins. The spring trip is an opportunity to celebrate our hard work, our successes over the course of the year, and to acknowledge the contributions and qualities of character of our class members. Perceived risk activities, such as high ropes courses, trapeze flying, and caving trips, are an important part of trips and serve to help students overcome fears and perceived challenges as they stretch their limitations and boundaries in life.
