Field trips help build relationships

Homer Flex High School would like to recognize and thank the Homer Incentive Fund, a donor-advised fund of the Homer Foundation, for their generous donation toward making our end of the year field trip possible. On May 14 and 15, staff and students from Homer Flex High School took a field trip to the Outdoor Education Center in Sterling. During our excursion, we explored nature, played many team-building games, and were able to go canoeing thanks to Alaska Canoe and Campground. Many of the students had never stepped foot in a canoe before, but it turned out to be a great learning experience. It was also an amazing opportunity to explore the outdoors, so we went on a group hike, picking up trash along the way. Many of the students broke out of their comfort zones in a positive way and had lots of fun while doing it.

One of the highlights of the trip was bonding around the campfire with stories and s’mores.

Overall, students were an integral part in helping plan and organize the field trip. This was a prime example of how important field trips can be to build strong, positive relationships between teachers and students.

Thank you,

Sierra Wylde

Homer Flex Student on behalf
