The kindergarten through sixth grades at the Wallowa elementary school split into seven groups of 17 to 18 students each last Thursday to take part in a Rendevous Day. The groups rotated to stations that included fry breaad making, bow making, candle making, dancing, tepee set up, the Oregon Trail and an old time school.

Presenters for the educational field day on the school's campus were Ruby Bryant and Connie Martin for fry bread making and butter churning, Jim Soares for bow making, Cheryl Cox for candle making, Deb Duquette for dancing, Jim Speer for tepee set up, Kate Loftus for the Oregon Trail and Linda Bauck for the old time school. Sarah and Krista Bomberger provided music for the dancers.
