This morning I got to school earlier than normal to say some goodbyes to our fifth grade students.  They left at about 7:30 to go on their annual “camping trip” which is an overnight trip.  For the past two years, we’ve gone to Thompson Island, which is one of the islands in Boston Harbor.  I’m glad that our students get an overnight experience and that they get to participate in activities that will help develop skills around working with others, leadership, and problem solving.  All skills they will continue to use well into adulthood, but delivered in a fun, overnight trip!  Have fun 5th graders!  #fiskeschool #camping #thompsonisland @fiskeschool
