On Friday, October 20, eighth-grade students gathered in the Media Center “dark and early” to begin the trip to Ridgecrest Conference Center. The new high ropes course awaited them. The girls were the first to greet the course in the cold morning air, many testing their skills on the obstacles numerous times. The boys followed after lunch and tackled the multiple levels of the course. Mr. Peckman challenged the boys to remain upright while dropping down from the course. It was harder than they thought, but several landed in creative upright positions. Students also enjoyed a laser tag course in the woods on the side of the mountain. As we headed to the buses students agreed that it had been a great day!
