There are 25 students in our class. One of the most exciting things we have done so far this year was to build an igloo out of milk cartons. We collected 449 milk cartons. The students use the igloo for quiet reading.This year we venture out to Prairie Woods Learning Center where the kids get to do archery, climb a rock wall, canoe, and do other outdoor activities. The students also get to visit the Meeker County Courthouse because of their participation in the D.A.R.E. program.
