On Friday, November 11, 2022, we are holding our first Veterans Day Assembly since 2019 (aka the start of Covid-19). We are asking any PCCS family to invite a Veteran if you know one ( family member, neighbor, etc.). We will be recognizing our veterans in our community. I interviewed Mrs. Barlow, our music teacher, and asked what the students are doing to recognize the Veterans. " We will present a token of our appreciation." We have a former Navy member, Mrs. Jenn one of our teachers aides, who shared one of her favorite memories on Veterans Day. " My favorite thing was when they opened up the Field of Heroes for Soldiers killed in action," she said. Our students are putting on an amazing assembly for the Veterans so please come and join us.
On September 26th the 1st and 2nd crews went to farmer Kevin Loveland to get potatoes for the Idaho Food bank. They where able to gather around 3000 lbs of potatoes. On November 10th, are going to the Idaho food bank, with the kindergarten to see how they are being used.
The 5th and 6th graders went backpacking for 3 days in elk meadows. The Swan crew and Terlson and England all went this month. Their weather was very pleasant. On Thursday they went on a day hike then later that day they went on a night hike. They saw a pretty sunset and a rib cage. Each crew was broken into groups and made skits. Hope they had a fun time.
The 3/4 Crew Campout The 3/4 crews just got back from their amazing trip! They drove to the back side of Pebble Ski Resort and had a fun time! They got to see cool animals and plants and also got to have s'mores and other great food made by Mr.Travis and Salty. What the Simpson crew did during the day was they hiked on their two trips and saw cool animals like a Garter snake and other things like a huge mushroom; they also saw other wildlife like aspen trees and pines. During the night they had a rainstorm but luckily it didn't rain on them because that would have made the campers cold and wet. They did however see some cool lightning and heard lots of thunder. The wind blew so hard the tents were almost blowing away! But with their quick thinking they parked the cars in front of the tents and got some rest. It was very windy and cold but they did it. The Parkinson crew went on their two trips and saw a frog, caterpillars galore, and tons of cows! They also camped in the same campground and went on the two hikes as well. They got amazing weather with no rain at all and had great fun playing and hiking together The wind was very calm and there was no thunder and lightning at all. This was the perfect time to go, I wish we got that weather every time! Lastly but not leastly, the Reinhardt crew did their hikes, and saw The Abyss of Doom, grasshoppers, a garter snake, an awesome cat-spider, bones, and some grouse! They went back to camp and had dinner with s'mores. They talked about no-trace with Salty and Mr.Travis and got a huge load of rain.
Hey it’s Henry Kmetz here reporting a fun camping trip that just went down! Let’s dive a little deeper shall we? During September 6 and 9th, the 1st and 2nd graders went camping, and it seems like they had a lot of fun! They went up to the Mink Creek Group Site near Scout Mountain. Some fun activities the crews did was practicing “Leave no Trace,” went hiking, and had lunch at Cherry Springs. According to Ms. Griggs, the weather was very hot but they got a little rain shower to cool them off. Our crews got to see a lot of cool stuff too. Apparently, they got to see a moose walking through the woods! How neat is that? But on a more sad note, they saw the leg of a deer while hiking. Well it sure does seem like the 1st and 2nd graders had a whole lot of fun! Thanks for reading I'll catch you later!
