5th Grade Field Trip To

Sherman Lake YMCA Outdoor Education Center!


Dear Fifth Grade Families,


We are excited to share that all fifth graders will have the opportunity to attend an overnight experience at the Sherman Lake YMCA this coming spring. Our partnership with Sherman Lake will support our school’s Social Emotional Learning and Leader in Me initiatives.The trip will include a 3-day, 2-night stay with many activities, such as rock climbing, swimming, archery, canoeing, hiking, fire building, open gym, team-building, and more! 


In the coming weeks, we’ll be taking students to get a “sneak peek” of Sherman Lake. We’re hoping this mini-trip will help answer some unknowns and build excitement for our year-end adventure. The half-day visit will include fun activities for students and a delicious lunch! 


Trip Dates:

October 12 -Bertolino, Eishen, Harkness, Launder, Remillet

October 13 - Hop, Minger, Monroe, Renne, VanEgmond 


*Classes will board buses at 9:00 am on their scheduled date and return around 12:30 pm. 


The YMCA’s policy is for all students to complete a Health History Form before each visit. Please complete and return the form to your child’s teacher by Monday, October 2, 2023.


Additional Information

The half-day trip this fall will be provided at no cost to all students. Students will be encouraged to participate in our Wreath Fundraiser to help raise funds for our overnight trip in the spring. Please see the Wreath Fundraiser packet for more details----coming soon!


We look forward to sharing these fun experiences with our students.Thank you for your continued support!
