MIDDLE SCHOOL TRIP TO LSSU
For three days this past week, most of the middle school students traveled to LSSU to experience a little bit of college living and learning in the outdoors.
MORE STUDENT ACTIVITIES THIS WEEK …
Y5-2nd sure had fun during a spring hike at the dunes! We reviewed the animals we had learned this year and collected sand toys on the way. Once we got to the lake, we created sand sculptures of our favorite animals we learned about!
The 3rd/4th graders had their last trip of the school year at the ODC this week. We celebrated with fishing. The students had such a great time. Some held a fish for the first time. We caught bass, blue gill, and sun fish. We would like to say a big thank you to Ms. Ruth and Ms. Sarah for all the great times this school year. The students have learned so much. The snacks were great too!!

NEWEST MASK INFORMATION – IS ANYTHING CHANGING AT SCHOOL?
Currently, the changes announced late this week do not impact us beyond the adjustments we have already made to our current mask policy. All staff, teachers, and students will continue to wear masks as before while inside the building, during arrival/dismissal and outside if in a learning situation where kiddos are closely together for 10 minutes or more. Masks are optional during recess times.
We are continuing to engage with health department officials and other schools in our area, but expect to operate with these protocols in place until the end of the school year.

We believe in the power of outdoor education. We have partnered with the Outdoor Discovery Center for three years now to help our teachers grow in their knowledge of outdoor education AND to grow curiosity, engagement, and care for the outdoors with every Inno kiddo! We’d love to pass that passion onto your family with a copy of the ODC Park Passport….a tool to help you explore a variety of amazing places in our area this spring and summer. We have printed one Park Passport and sent it home for every Innocademy family. You can also find an introductory video and digital copy on the ODC website in both English and Spanish: https://outdoordiscovery.org/park-passport/
