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 body recovered from a drowning at Harvey Gap Reservoir has been identified.
