Fourth Grade Day - Swans Island Trip

posted Jun 10, 2013, 8:28 AM by Sue Hersey
Last Friday, June 7, 2013 was the 21st Fourth Grade Day with our trip to Swans Island.  Students from Mount Desert Elementary School, Tremont and Trenton also went on the trip.  The weather cooperated and we had a great ferry ride over to Swans Island. 

 We gathered in the gym of the school for our first activity of a Friendship Search.  We were in groups with our keypals. 

 Next, we participated in four different activities:
 Cemetery Search, 

Un-nature Trail ( Swans Island students placed unusual objects along a path for us to find), 

a bus tour of the three towns on Swans and the lighthouse, and then, of course, time to play with all our new friends on the school playground. We enjoyed lunch on a pebble beach with a view of Mount Desert Island.

   Many thanks to the following chaperones who helped on this trip: Mrs. Gilbert, Mrs. Ingebritson, Ms Norwood, Ms Ingrisano, Mrs. Tibbetts and Mr. Willis.  I'm sure they had as much fun as the students. It was a wonderful day.
