IMG 1130enrichfield2

 

A group of 33 enrichment students from our three elementary schools enjoyed a day out to learn all about Space Exploration.

 

On February 19, they attended a CLO show entitled BEYOND THE MOON, that was performed at Rochester High School, and sponsored by the GIFTED CONSORTIUM of Beaver County.

The students learned about famous astronauts and their discovery of what is beyond our planet Earth.

 

This show, with its educational scope, as well as the professional stage entertainment, left the students wanting more!

 

The elementary students in grade 3, 4, and 5 enjoyed this educational trip, and wrapped up their exciting day by visiting McDonald’s in Baden for lunch. Mrs. Petukauskas and Mr. Price were proud of the student’s behavior, and look forward to our next venture in the enrichment program!
