Yosemite Bound!

On Sunday, May 11th, the faculty and students of Wolf River Lutheran High School left the school at about 2:30am on their way to Austin Straubel Airport in Green Bay in order to fly  to California for a school-wide field trip to Yosemite National Park. The group returned on Saturday, May 17th.

The trip, suggested and organized by the school’s math and science teacher, Mr. Paul Duerr, had been in the works for months as students had been busy raising the necessary funds to pay for the adventure. “Mr. Duerr grew up in California and has visited Yosemite countless times,” said Jay Lindsey, the school’s principal, “he came to me with the idea and I encouraged him to get the school board’s permission.”

While the trip was fun, the teachers worked hard to make it an educational experience. “The teachers spent time teaching units in history, science, and literature centering on our nation’s vast national park program and Yosemite in particular,” said Lindsey, “Christian teachings, particularly creationism, were emphasized too.”

It is hoped that this trip, and others like it in the future, can become a tradition. “An education is most effective when studied up close and personal. Our smaller school size makes trips like this more obtainable,” said Paul Duerr.
