At our monthly student recognition assemblies, we draw the names of 4 students who get to go on a special outing with the school principal - me! The trip is always a surprise until it is announced at the assembly. Two intermediate and two primary students join me for an afternoon trip to one of many outdoor or community locations. We have been to local parks, the beach, a reptile refuge, various creeks, the Serpentine Fen, a bird sanctuary, a local nursery, a garden center, the bog and bowling. I take pictures and post a write up on a bulletin board. This is one of the highlights of my month as I share special time with students. I am always looking for different spaces and places.
