High ropes

This image neatly captures our day yesterday, as we spent the entire day outdoors at a facility that helps with team-building and community-building.

The central activity is the “high ropes course,” a series of challenges for our sixth graders, and an opportunity to talk about anxiety and reaction to stress, support of your community and individual accomplishments.

It was a great day. The weather held out (we thought rain was coming but it never did) and the energy of the day was overwhelmingly positive.

Peace (high and low),
Kevin

  1. The photo is inspiring! I hope you have it printed and hanging in your classroom as a reminder of the lessons learned that day. I’ve never done a ropes course, wondering now if I should.
