Harry Stone Montessori students got acquainted with a moody oasis, powerful ocean, the earth from space, living plants, and a colorful pumpkin patch thanks to a field trip to the Dallas Arboretum.
All elementary students attended the field trip on Oct. 18, and Principal Niki Jones called it an eye-opening experience for students and teachers alike.
“I think it was life changing because the students expressed their desire to have more outdoor learning opportunities,” Jones said. “Our goal with both our school’s Montessori and International Baccalaureate programs are to develop global students that are prepared to engage in the world. This field trip that gave our students outstanding hands-on learning experiences in the outside world.”
