Intermediate Inquirers

The Intermediate Pod is very excited for their outdoor education experience and the relationships that will be built and strengthened during the week. A packing list went home last week, but you will find it here again for easy access while you are preparing those last few items! Please remember to bring a disposable sack lunch for Monday only. All other food is provided throughout the week. Arrival and dismissal times will be as normal. See you on Monday!
