Middle School Trip Week 2021

For the first time in two years, we were able to send our Middle School students out on the road for their annual class trips! Our 8th-graders headed to the beautiful moutains of Flat Rock, North Carolina to camp and hike. Our 7th-graders got to spend some time in lovely, historic Savannah, Georgia.

Though it was a rainy week for everyone, memories were made, life lessons learned, and fun was had by all!
