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.
