Field Study!!

Yesterday, we had an adventure at Myrtle Beach! We got to explore parts of South Carolina, that some of us have never got to see.  We explored the labs at Wonderworks, fish, sharks, and rays at Ripley's Aquarium, and filled up on JohnnyRockets. Thank you so much to the parents that were able to attend and share this experience with us. We hope to see more of you in future field studies ahead.

Thank you,

            Mrs. Mitchell
