Adventure Ed Funding Request - May 30, 2006

To Persons of Interest:

During the past school year, 2005-06, the role of Adventure Education at Langley Middle School has been greatly elevated. Due to a good vision of the director of the program, Adventure Education has enabled students to go far beyond programs of the past. Students participated in trips to Glacier National Park, Los Padres National Forest, and the Washington Coastal Trail Hike. The enthusiasm generated in students by this program has been phenomenal. Even knowing of the rigorous academic preparation for these trips students still flock to become part of the class. The director of the program is constantly being addressed with the hope that it will encompass even more far reaching goals. The teachers involved with Adventure Education are dedicated to making this program a model for all schools seeking such a class offering. Additional means of funding are required to allow the program’s expansion. I fully support any help offered by outside sources to enhance this program. Adventure Education at LMS is truly an inspiring part of the total educational process. If I can be of any further help please don’t hesitate to ask.

Tent Practice - May 11, 2006

Today, Adventure Ed students had the opportunity to set up the new Kelty tents that recently arrived in the mail. Every group was successful in setting up their tent. On future trips, students will be able to split the weight of these five-pound tents by carrying different parts in their backpacks. These two-person tents fit perfectly with our lightweight backpacking focus. LMS Adventure Ed would like to thank the PTSA for their financial support. These tents could not have been purchased without their help. Adventure Ed students will now have a dry place to stay on wet, chilly nights.
