Troy news/ Students, parents enjoy McCall field trip

One of the highlights of the Troy students' McCall field trip was feeding a herd of wild elk. The sidetrip brought a big smile to the face of Sophia Kiesecker, while fellow Salvador Mindez and Clint Heuitt. Submitted photo

The Troy students recently enjoyed a "Lifetime Sports Field Trip" to McCall, Idaho. Teacher Mr. Beyer had not yet been to the area, so he was really looking forward to the trip. He was pleased that family members were able to attend. Included during the two-day trip in addition to skiing and school lessons, were some additional activities, like tubing, ice skating, a hay ride to see elk and a community theater production.

The trip was a great success. Most of the parents were able to attend and share in the process of learning skiing with the students. Mr. Byer said the kids made great progress in their skills, due to instructors at Brundage Mountain. The fun began with a trip down the slopes on inner tubes at the activity barn, with Mr. Beyer leading the way at breakneck speed. Giggles and laughter were heard near and far, with a few screams from Connie (teacher's aide).
