Mrs. Lund’s 2nd and 3rd graders went on a field trip to the Abilene Smokey Valley Railroad and got to ride on the train and eat lunch in the dining car. They finished up the afternoon at the Lakewood Discovery Center in Salina where they got a lesson on life cycles and got to explore to find creatures during different stages in their life cycle. They found snails, tad poles, ghost shrimp, small fish, eggs, insects, and so much more! It was a wonderful trip!

Mrs. Rein and the South Junior High history class learned about agricultural at a working farm by visiting the Rein Family Farm. Steve Rein showed students the combine, disk, and sprayer. Students got to climb in and explore, run out in the wheat field, and were shown the types of grain raised on the Rein Farm: wheat, milo, and corn. Students also went up in the hay loft and saw itty bitty kittens. It was fun but turned out to be an educational experience to round out their lessons on Kansas History.
