Wilderness Wonders-Eagle Sky Adventure

It’s nearly impossible to capture the beauty and benefit of our all-school, three-day, Wilderness Wonders retreat at Eagle Sky.

In our present culture of distraction, too much screen time, diminished family and friend relationships, this experience is essential. Authentic relationship growth is KEY for the good of students, parents, and staff! We experienced our Creator in nature and worship times, friendships grew deeper and new ones formed. Peace, unity, laughter, and adventure filled our days!

Along with relationship growth, student learning and skill advancement is powerfully impactful.

The pre-K through sixth grade students….

  • Dissected owl pellets to find and identify bones of animals
  • Played games and learned about weather and cloud types
  • Observed and learned about elk, bison, longhorns, and goats
  • Engaged in collaborative team-building games
  • Participated in recreational activities including a slingshot, bb-rifle range, and petting zoo

Our seventh through twelfth graders…

  • Overcame fears on a high ropes course
  • Controlled and guided water vessels
  • Participated in archery
  • Learned about soil
  • Tasted fresh honey from the comb and grew in pollinator knowledge

All of our students…

  • Experienced lake adventures with inflatable obstacle courses, teeter totter, and water Saturn
  • Slid down and launched from the Screaming Eagle Water Slide
  • Enjoyed recreation activities including, human foosball, whiffle ball, kickball, gaga ball, swimming, basketball, beach swings, soccer, and sand volleyball

We are so thankful to Eagle Sky for hosting such a beneficial, unifying experience for our Prodigy family. Thank you to our families who came and to those who trusted us with their children. Thank you to Ms. Kimberly Smith, who demonstrates love and attention in organizing the details.

To God be the glory for this unforgettable time together! Please fill out the following survey for future planning and feedback.

Jackets

With our weather cooling off, please remember to send a jacket with your student, when necessary, with his/her name written it in. We love this beautiful campus and plan to enjoy it as much as possible!

Fire Safety Month Tips

  1. Have working smoke alarms in your home
  2. Change batteries in those smoke alarms
  3. Establish a family safety plan of what to do incase of a fire or emergency in your home-designate a “safe” meeting place. (ex. Swing set, etc.)
  4. Practice fire drills at home with your family

We pray we never have to use these items but being prepared is always best. We had a campus safety drill on October 5th. Our students and staff did a great job!

Dress Code Reminder

As cooler weather comes, please make sure to adhere to our PLA dress code. Coats and outerwear do not need to be Prodigy wear, but sweatshirts and long sleeve items for layers, need to follow the dress code requirements. Dress code policy attached.
