For the first time in many years, the Candalaria 5th Grade class is headed to Outdoor School! Scheduled for late April, Outdoor School is an exciting opportunity for the students to participate in hands-on learning outside the classroom. Outdoor School will replace our traditional 5th Grade year-end party, and will allow the 5th graders to participate in Field Day.
Outdoor School will be located at Canyonview Camp, just outside Silverton. It combines a classic camp setting and activities with the opportunity to learn about the amazing outdoor landscape here in Oregon. The camp sits in a beautiful, safe setting which will allow for fun, adventure and learning.
The 5th Grade Outdoor School Committee has been busy raising money to pay for this opportunity, through community events like Movie Night, Bingo Night and Popcorn Fridays. Thanks to the support of our amazing Candalaria Community, we are well on our way to our goal!
We ask for your continued support in our upcoming events. A successful pilot year is vital in paving the way for Outdoor School for all future 5th graders. This is an experience that students will look forward to throughout their years at Candalaria, and one that they will remember for a lifetime.
