News from Discovery

On Tuesday, March 31st, Discovery took a field trip to Shelburne Farms for the "Hike, Don't Hibernate" Program.  After a series of team-building activities, groups ventured into the woods where they had to navigate with a map, build a shelter, and start a campfire.

Here are some memorable comments from students:
On their expectations for the day:
"I expect to have fun while working as a team."  -Rylea, 4th grade
"I expect to make mistakes but learn from them."  -Jack, 4th grade
At the conclusion of the experience:
"I would like to thank everyone in the group for being so helpful and accomplishing the goals our team set."  -Evan, 4th Grade
"This is actually way better than video games!"  -Caleb, 5th grade

Mindful Monday

Visualize A Relaxing Place: Imagine laying on your back on the beach, your body sinking into the warm sand. Smell the salty warm air and feel the wind blow through your hair and over your face. Hear the seagulls squawk above you and hear the rolling of the waves. Feel your skin begin to cool for a moment as a cloud passes in front of the sun and then moves along. Visualize the ocean water beginning to lap at your feet as the tide comes in. Wiggle your toes in the shallow warm swirling water for a moment before feeling it slowly drift back into the ocean.
