Climbing

The third through fifth-grade students were given the opportunity to attend Gemstone Climbing.  They went 5 times in the month of January. 

The students began with small boulders and worked their way up to auto-belay climbing.  There are many benefits of climbing.  Students increase strength, endurance, and flexibility.  Rock climbing builds confidence and self-esteem.  Problem-solving, planning, and decision making are part of the learning experience. The students really enjoyed themselves and we will be incorporating it into our PE program. Check out the pictures!
