Middle School Students on their overnight trip to Frost Valley
Our 7th and 8th grade students kicked off the year with a three day overnight trip to the Frost Valley YMCA in Claryville, NY. As part of their climate justice curriculum, they studied water ecology and learned where New York City water is sourced. They also grew stronger as a community through team building exercises.
