8th Grade Celebration Retreat
June 7 - June 9
When: June 7-9 – students leaving SCS on Monday morning and returning before dismissal on Wednesday. Choosing these dates will help us use these last three days of school well and with intention.
Where: East Haven Retreat Center on Middle Thompson Lake. This is the same venue we use for our High School Retreat. It is a great place with lots of space for a variety of different activities. There are separate, designated sleeping quarters and a commercial kitchen from which we can feed a hungry group of kids. One of the best aspects of the Retreat Center is that there is no cell service which eliminates the distraction that cell phones become.
What: We intend to create an experience that fosters good relationships, celebrates the successes and accomplishments of the year, and builds community. There will be time spent in gender specific groups (Man Club activities!)
Who: This trip is for the 8th grade students only and chaperoned by teachers and parents. Mr. Phillips and Mr. Annis will be on site for portions of the trip.
