Stedents to attend ‘Cowboy Camp’
First-graders from Ridgeview Elementary School will cowboy-up on Sept. 28 as they venture to the Carpenter Ranch. The day trip, led by first-grade teacher Paula Bray, will allow the students to participate in cowboy-type activities.
According to Bray, the field trip has many events planned for students and the tour will tie in with a common western theme.
Students will have the opportunity to partake in activities like a chuck wagon lunch, brand making, roping, outdoor writing and cowboy sing-a-longs. Ranch-goers will also be able to dress in authentic clothing and have their picture taken.
This western theme will tie into an event involving parents of the first-graders. A mock rodeo set-up by Ridgeview Physical Education Instructor Ann Wagner will be the feature occurrence during this event for parents and students.
The journey, consisting of Ridgeview faculty, students and cowboys, will begin at 9 a.m. on Sept. 28 and be complete at 1 p.m.
The Carpenter Ranch, located at 13250 W. U.S. Highway 40, is home to many field-trips throughout the year. It is a fully operational ranch and the trips are in conjunction with the Nature Conservancy.
The Victory Motors Cancer Drive saw another successful year raising money for the Moffat County Cancer Society over the weekend, surpassing $100,000 in donations.
