Fifth Grade Visits O'Maley School

Our fifth grade took a trip to O’Maley Middle School on Wednesday, January 18. The visit was the first chance for the students to explore the school. They chatted with several older students about their SAILS program. The
SAILS program promotes building a respectful community through Service, Acceptance, Integrity, Leadership and Success. The students participated in some team building activities. They had an opportunity to use one of the lower-level STEM Labs. The students built small wooden paddleboats. After some discussion about the science behind the ships, they raced them against each other. All in all it was a fun, successful and informative first visit
