By Sixth Grade, students have firmly established themselves in the Middle School and are ready for new challenges. The year is an exciting one, beginning with an overnight trip to Frost Valley with the Seventh Grade in the fall. On this trip, students are encouraged to test their personal strength and courage by participating in a number of physical challenges such as "The Flying Squirrel," the climbing wall, and a number of low-ropes courses.
Throughout Sixth Grade, the students work with various age groups within the school and community. A favorite Sixth Grade activity is interviewing some of our First Grade students, which helps them remember what the world is like through the eyes of a six-year-old. Sixth Grade is also a year where the students get to take many unique and interesting curriculum-related field trips. One of the choice field trips is to Medieval Times, which allows the students to go back to the eleventh century and experience life in the Middle Ages. As the students continue to mature and grow in their abstract thought, they begin to experience new activities and ideas on a daily basis.
