New Club Provides Middle School Students with the Opportunity to Explore Outdoor Activities
The new middle school Adventure Club got off to a great start last week, as students spent a few hours after school fishing. Students met up with parent volunteers at Menominee Park in Oshkosh and learned some basic fishing techniques. Afterward, students enjoyed grilled hot dogs and chips with their fellow fishermen and women.
The Adventure Club was started this school year as an opportunity for middle school students to explore new activities – things they probably wouldn’t try on their own. Primarily coordinated by parents, the club has monthly activities planned through out the school year.
