Lessons not easily forgotten

Basalt Elementary School, along with ACES/Rock Bottom Ranch, recently provided an education not soon to be forgotten, if ever.

The dedicated teachers and the outstanding leaders of the ranch taught many life lessons to our second-graders. The day-and-a-half outdoor educational program included nature hikes, team building sessions, hands-on animal behavioral lessons, a campfire, singing, dancing and stories.

The education touched on all aspects of academics in a fun, memorable and long-lasting way. A big “well done” to all, on the planning and implementation, as well as the commitment to the education of our school kids.
