Camp Dick Robinson has created a NEW Facebook page and NEW Instagram account. Be sure to check this flyer out and follow the new accounts!
Camp Dick Robinson Elementary and Mr. Patrick Kennedy have created a new focus on student fitness and movement, coupled with a schedule that almost doubles students' fitness time each week! Join us live on Facebook at 11:10AM to experience one of Mr. Kennedy's Fitness classes! Mr. Kennedy explains, "The idea is to get them more moderate to high intensity exercise. This will allow for higher brain function and better mood which will help them throughout their day and week. " In his classes, students not only participate in exercise each day, but refocus and check in with how they feel.
Mrs. Parsons' GMS AG class had the opportunity to participate in a live tour of Stooksbury Dairy Farm with Farmer Grant for a behind the scenes look at his family’s dairy farm!

The students actually got to ask questions live, while Farmer Grant engaged with the class!
