SMCHS students will have a wonderful opportunity to experience an Alaskan adventure with teachers Gail Hawley and Tara Opsteen-Van Dyke, June 6-11, 2016.
“Alaska is nicknamed the “last wilderness” because its land is still mostly wild and undeveloped,” says Miss Hawley. “I want to take students to experience the beauty of this part of our country and hope to inspire a commitment to preserving the resources God gave us.”
Mrs. Opsteen Van Dyke uses Alaska’s Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in her curriculum, and knows that experiential learning is an extremely motivating teaching tool in the Language Arts curriculum. She is excited to share her love of “The Last Frontier” with SMCHS students.
An informational meeting will take place on Wednesday, September 30 at 6:30 p.m. in Room 203 at the high school.
