Summer is wrapping up and it feels like fall is upon us. Staff and students enjoyed a variety of seasonal activities during the month of August. Here are just a few of the activities students participated in.
- Adventure Education Supervisor, Sarah, and Life Staff Manager, Jeff, took some students and their parents up to Roman Nose Lakes for a BBQ, picnic and hiking.
- August graduates went on the trip of their choice to Triple Play in Coeur D’Alene and then out for hot wings. The next day, we said farewell to our seven August graduates and we wish them great success!
- We celebrated the 8 month anniversary of Pink Glove Boxing here at NWA with an amazing and inspiring demonstration by our female students and their trainer and Recovery Specialist, Mikki.
- Students were recognized by their teachers for academic excellence and perseverance in front of staff and students who celebrated their success with them.
- The two week long Salmon River white water getaway rafting trips saw students and their families reconnecting in beautiful setting away from everything.
- Many students spent the week off campus with staff and Grey Wolf, a Native American historian, who guides students through a week long bonding experience: sharing stories around the campfire, fun crafts, archery and an opportunity to get to know each other better and truly build their NWA community.
- Later phase students took off on a week long camping trip with our adventure education gurus and had a fun and outdoorsy boy trip camping and canoeing on Lake Pend Oreille.
- Adventure education supervisor, Andre, and life staff, Jeff, took some students off campus for a mountain biking adventure at scenic Brush Falls.
- High school football is here and two of our students joined the Bonners Ferry Badgers to play on the team. Staff and students were on hand to cheer them on.
- Our Academic Director, Julie, took a group of staff and students to St. Maries, Idaho to dig for start garnets.
- Adventure Education supervisor, Andre, and math teacher, Dwayne, took a group of students to bike the 15 mile Hiawatha Trail that features 11 train tunnels and some scenic trestles.
August saw some great adventures and quite a few enrollments, giving staff and students the opportunity to step up, get acquainted and make the new students feel comfortable in their new environment.
Another pretty great month!
