“All of Agnes Stewart’s seventh-graders get to go on the trip this year, science teacher Carrie Patter­son said. Six more classes from the middle school will make the trip in the next two weeks.

‘It’s a great way to start off the year,’ Patterson said. ‘It’s amazing to me how many kids don’t know about what’s in their own backyard.”
