Honoring Our Veterans

Posted by: on Dec 5, 2018 in SHAS NEWS | No Comments

During our recent Veteran’s Day program, each class demonstrated their respect for past and present veterans by learning about each branch of the armed services and their individual service songs.  The students and invited guests were also treated to an excellent speech by Jim Vollegraaf describing his experiences in basic training in the 1960’s.  Mr. Vollegraaf masterfully connected his military team building exercises with student classroom interactions.  At a solemn closing to our program, our very own music teacher, Michael Rohr, provided a wonderful rendition of TAPS.

Fun Fieldtrips

This year, we were able to offer some very exciting lyceums and fieldtrips.  This spring, our 4th and 5th grade students, along with their teachers and some parents, made the traditional trip to the State Capitol/Science Museum field trip to St. Paul, Minnesota.  This field trip is a highlight for our intermediate grade students and has been a tradition made on alternating years with the 2 night stay, ecological adventure at the Audubon Center of the North Woods in Sandstone, MN.  PreK-5th grade enjoyed a fieldtrip this spring to the Hemker Park Zoo in Freeport, to see the variety of exotic animals.
