Great parents

Our sixth grade class recently spent three fabulous days in Arches National Park. We all had a wonderful time. Over 33 parents volunteered to go on three separate trips, and I would like to thank all of them for coming.

First, if we didn’t have the parents, the trips wouldn’t have happened. All of them were fun, friendly and happy group leaders. They cooked great food and had to get up early to boil water so we could have hot chocolate in the morning. They also helped us set up our cozy tents.

Because we had so many volunteers we were able to have lots of freedom. To all the volunteers, thanks for coming and making our trips to Arches memorable.
