I met the buses last Friday as they delivered students back to Bath Middle School. There were abundant smiles and a lot of positive energy as the kids charged down the stairs. I got high-five after high-five and heard "it was really fun!' over and over.
I didn't get to go on this round of trips, so I don't have any specific anecdotes to share, but I can say that this group enjoyed another week of perfect weather. The skies were clear and the temperature was just about perfect.
This was the last week of trips for Bath Middle School. The final week of FLOW 2016 wraps up with 42 8th graders from Woolwich Central School next week.
As FLOW continues to establish itself as an integral part of the fabric of middle school at RSU 1, our hope is that the experience helps kids successfully navigate this dynamic period of their lives. By providing scaffolded lessons in appropriate risk taking, we hope we are quieting those teenage brains from so many distractions, and getting them primed to learn.
