4th, 5th, and 6th Grade Go to Maine!

Written by Corah Bannister, Jubilee School Teacher

In late May, 9 Jubilee School students embarked on an unforgettable adventure to Maine, marking a milestone in our commitment to experiential learning. The 10-hour journey was just the beginning of a week filled with excitement, learning, and personal growth.

One of the highlights was the rock climbing and ropes course activities. Students learned to trust each other, communicate effectively, and push beyond their comfort zones. As Key’ier put it, “Rock climbing was amazing! I felt like I could do anything with my friends cheering me on.”

Nature hikes allowed students to connect with the environment and appreciate the beauty of the great outdoors. Journey exclaimed, “The hikes were my favorite. I loved seeing all the different plants and animals.” These hikes were not only fun but also a great way to learn about ecology and conservation.
We also had the unique opportunity to go lobster catching. This hands-on experience was both educational and thrilling. Zuri shared, “Catching lobsters was so cool! I never thought I’d be able to do something like that.” After a day of lobster catching, students enjoyed swimming in the crystal-clear waters, making memories that will last a lifetime.

Our trip to Maine was a remarkable success, filled with laughter, learning, and adventure. We are incredibly proud of our students for their enthusiasm and willingness to embrace new challenges. We look forward to many more such enriching experiences in the future.
