8th-grade students traveled to iFly Denver in Lone Tree where they spent the morning learning about the physics of skydiving through demos in the wind tunnel and a lab activity. They then put their knowledge into practice with simulated skydives of true freefall conditions in an indoor vertical wind tunnel. Students concluded the day with a visit to Independence Aviation Flight School in Centennial where they toured an extensive fleet of Cirrus Aircraft and participated in exciting flight simulators.

The Children's Homer by Padriac Column is an epic tale that includes two ancient Greek tales that shaped Greek culture, The Illiad and The Odyssey. Upon completion of reading the book, students were given a creative writing assignment. Odysseus's family was many miles away and he did not see them for over 20 years. If mail could have been delivered in the days of Ancient Greece, what would his family have written to each other?

Students also enjoyed a hike through Castlewood Canyon where they were able to experience four different Colorado ecosystems. They passed through the valley that was once a reservoir for the Castlewood Canyon Dam, which flooded the city of Denver in 1933 when the dam failed.

Our senses are the gateway to our memory, and the festival is an opportunity to bring history and character development to life for our students. Today first-grade students served as guides on a trip back in time to the beginning of our great country. Through songs,…
