Outdoor Education 3/6

Dear Families,

I am writing to inform you that the 1st grade class will be having their outdoor education program on Tuesday, March 6th. We will be visiting the Hidden Valley Nature Center to do trail clean-up projects and learn about the Leave No Trace ethic to take care of the natural spaces we depend on.

We will be leaving GSB at 8:30 and returning at 11:20 for lunch. Kasie Taylor, our Kieve Educator in Residence, is joining us, accompanied by Jill Davis, Cacy Herrick, and Kami Peaslee.

For this day please make sure your child has the following:
  • Waterproof boots 
  • Snow pants - weather dependent - or waterproof rain pants 
  • Hat and mittens/gloves 
  • Warm jacket 
  • Warm long sleeve sweater/fleece/flannel 
  • Backpack with a snack and water bottle 
  • Change of clothes (if your child tends to get wet & muddy when given the opportunity) 

Once again we are excited about this opportunity to spend time with your children enjoying a fun-filled morning of outdoor activities. Parents are welcome to join, please let Jill Davis know if you’ll be able to attend. You can call at 563-3091 or email her at

Jill Davis and Cacy Herrick
