Summer Session in Full Swing at Rock Point School
By Taylor Vaughn
Summer Session students arrived one week ago and have already been extremely busy! With Yoga, soccer, and swimming in the morning, students have been staying physically active and enjoying the great weather. Additionally, students have been participating in “Vermont Exposures” trips to learn about the history, art, economy, culture, and landscape of Vermont.
In the first week, students spent the Fourth of July in Richmond, enjoying a parade and exploring the historical Round Church built in 1812. They also learned a little about the geography of Vermont and, specifically, the Winooski River as they crossed it eight times and visited the estuary.
On Thursday, the “Exposures” adventurers stayed closer to home, hiking through the Ethan Allen Homestead and learning about the colonial history of Burlington. They finished the day with a swim in Lake Champlain.
For their first weekend trip, students traveled to Killington and stayed at the Hemingway House on Mission Farm. There they enjoyed hiking, swimming, and riding the Beast Mountain Coaster at Killington Resort.
Summer Session is off to an amazing start and students can hardly wait for more adventures!
