From Mrs. Fleming:

The students are having a fantastic time! They went with their field groups this afternoon. One group did a mini ropes course that focused on cooperation and communication. The other went on a nature hike that focused on care of the environment and community while looking for slithery, slimy creatures. Everyone enjoyed the grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup for lunch. Our initial ORT report was only 4lbs! The students loved our ravioli and garlic bread dinner.  I will send more pictures tomorrow when I can find better WiFi. Overall, an excellent first day!

Everyone slept well. The girls are bright eyed and bushy tailed and gave Mrs. Diorio a facial all before 7 a.m. Breakfast was pancakes and bacon. The students are getting for a day of field groups and classes. Tonight, they will go on a night hike and have a bonfire.
