On Friday October 14th, the 8th grade class headed to American Stonehenge in Salem, NH. It was a beautiful New England fall day and students spent the day learning and exploring about the over 4,000 year geological site. As they have been studying Geology in Science class, this really connected to their curriculum. They climbed through caves and took an audio tour that explained the Native American connections as well as the uses by the Underground Railroad.
Students finished their day with a picnic lunch outside, and a stop at Heavenly Donuts in Salem, NH where Principal Hilliard treated the 8th grade class to all 115 donuts that were left in the store! It was an amazing day of learning!
