“Our students are much more aware of the fun they can have in these long winter months and it’s been wonderful to hear the positive feedback from our parents. It certainly made January fly right by!“
NANCY STOVER, PRINCIPALPRESCOTT MEMORIAL SCHOOL, WASHINGTON, ME
“The activities gave us new, fresh ways to get the kids engaged outside. Students enjoyed the inquiry, and structure, yet freedom in the way they were able to carry out the activities. It also gave us a great chance to work together as a school, team, and community. “
