    5th Grade Outdoor Ed!!

    We are excited to announce an Outdoor Education Learning opportunity for our 5th graders this year.  For the first time in West Ridge history, we have arranged for our entire 5th grade class to attend a learning program at Covenant Heights in Estes Park, Colorado.  With the superintendent’s recent approval of this trip, we are ready to forge ahead and begin sharing the planning and preparation involved to ensure a safe and successful experience for all!

    We believe that our trip to Covenant Heights will provide 5th grade students with an opportunity to transfer and apply prior classroom instruction through experiential learning.  The experience will allow students to connect to their learning by engaging all of their senses.  Students will participate in a number of outdoor education experiences and classes that intentionally and thoughtfully align to the Colorado State Standards for 5th grade.  Students will have an opportunity to explore Map and Compass orienteering, GPS navigation, Wilderness Survival, Rocky Mountain Geology, Water Ecology, Animal Tracks and Trails, and much, much more!    

    In addition to the wealth of educational opportunities our students will be immersed in over the course of the three days, students will also have the opportunity to go on a journey of self-exploration and discovery; face challenges or fears; and build camaraderie through relationships with their peers.  We believe this opportunity will provide our 5th grade wildcats with a learning experience that will impact their lives for years to come!

    We have a variety of ideas and fundraisers planned to raise the necessary funds to ensure every child is able to attend!  Here are just a few…

    Taking over the Student Store each Wednesday morning!!

    Cake Raffles!!

    Kids Night Out!!

    Donations from parents and PTO!!

    We are extremely excited about this learning opportunity for our students.  In the coming days we will continue to share as much information as we can to ensure you and your child are comfortable with the learning plan.  Thank you in advance for your support and being open to this opportunity.  We are ready and available for questions and concerns at any time, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
