Students who attended summer school at New Haven have been treated to several educational field trips.  Here is a wrap up of everywhere they have been this summer.

I spoke briefly with Kasi Meyer, Elementary Principal, about their summer school program.

Meyer said, “We are definitely keeping kids fit this summer, mentally and physically."

At Powder Valley Nature Center everything is native to Missouri.  There are 3 miles of trails, interactive models, scientific tools, live animals (snapping turtles, snakes, toads, etc). 

Last Tuesday kindergarteners got to see different animals from Purina Farms at the Washington City Park.  Students were able to interact with the animals and shown how to milk a cow. 

Mrs. Meyer said, “Students really had a great time.  I know they enjoyed being able to pet the cows and seeing a cow be milked.  I have been so proud of all our students who have attended summer school, from the second they arrive in the morning you can tell they are excited to be here."

Part of New Haven’s summer school program, also included seeing some of New Haven's history by visiting downtown.

They also visited one of the neatest stores downtown Astral Glass.  Students got to see Gary Rice, owner of Astral Glass, demonstrate how he makes some of the different items he sells.
