The grade 10 class had a great time on the 10th annual Mr. Howe Big Muddy Camping Trip last week. They did a lot of hiking, exploring, and bonding. The weather was perfect, the burgers were delicious, the cows were friendly (even to Jamie), Aust’s General Store had everything anyone could ever need, and “Hide and Go Seek” in the dark was a big hit. Thanks to the chaperones, Mr. Howe, Mr. Zacharias, Don Corrigan, and Kaylan Rekken. Also thanks to the Webers for lending their big truck.
