The Henry Ford
This morning we headed off to The Henry Ford for a (nearly) full day field trip. The whole school went, which meant we really depended on our lovely parent volunteers. A BIG S-K thank you to Peter Ho Davies, Mark Maynard, Jeff Rhodes and Anne Leo. We couldn't have done it without you.
This was a wonderful opportunity for our students to find out more about the early pioneers of aviation. We got to sit inside a real plane and make and test different designs of paper airplanes. After thoroughly exploring the flight exhibit, we explored other areas of this fantastic museum. The children (and adults) were ravenous by lunchtime and exhausted by departure time. I know your child will have lots of stories to share about this special field trip - and I continue to be thankful to teach at a school that realizes the value of these experiences.
