Our Field Trip to Lucky Ladd!
The Great Grapes had a great time at the annual Lucky Ladd field trip. They saw the farm animals, the corn maze and helped with lunch wagons.
(below) The Playful Peanuts did a great job for the Penny Drive, which raised money for the Unchained Movement. The class with the most weight in pennies won a pizza party.
