Class Notes:
Keewaydin Environmental Education Center

Fifth graders spent a week at Keewaydin Environmental Education Center (KEEC) in Salisbury, VT, from Sept. 25-29, 2023. KEEC offers hands-on, experiential learning through a variety of teaching styles in a variety of natural habitats that serve as their outdoor classroom. In helping students understand their interconnectedness with the environment, KEEC furthered our school’s mission “to help our children grow into their best selves—responsible citizens and stewards of the greater world.” Fifth Grade Teacher Carrie Gardner wrote: “As September came to a close, we were able to learn more about functioning not only as a team but also as a class and as human beings with nature.”
