A Friday Hello from Mrs. MacQueen

October 3, 2014WES-10314

It's almost hike time! Since the beginning of Rivendell, the Cross Rivendell Trail has been used as an outdoor classroom and a place of learning. Next Friday, our entire school will once again hike a section of the trail, heading east this year, to Bald Top Mountain in Fairlee. The hike measures about 3.6 miles round trip and is a moderate hike. Along the way, we'll take time to stop for snacks and discuss our natural surroundings. When we reach the summit of Bald Top, we'll break for lunch, pictures, games and fun activities. Please join us for this annual WES community hike!
