Snow-y Day

Snow-y Day at DRM

95 students and all of our teachers and staff arrived safely for our first Snow-y Day.  Some came on foot, some by school bus, some by car-pooling, and some came by local transit!

Students said: “Best snow school day ever!”; “It was great!”, “That was so, so much fun!”

Teachers said: “First “Snow-y Day” I’ve ever had!”; “My students are bragging about how much fun they had!”

Here is a glimpse at some of the learning that took place…
