High School Retreat
Our entire high school student body including community students goes on a high school retreat the first week of school.  We go to WLD ranch in Girard.  This is a two day and one night high school field trip.  This is a time of students getting to know one other and welcoming new student’s to our school.  During this retreat, the WLD staff helps students perform multiple team building activities.  These activities are designed to allow various students lead others and students to learn how to follow as well.  In the past, we have found that this retreat sets the tone for the beginning of the school year.  The schools principal and superintendent is also in attendance to help set tone for the year.
