Grade 6 Overnight at Pushing the Envelope Farm
Abbe Roth

Grade 6 students had a fantastic time at Pushing the Envelope Farm this week, using the time to truly bond as a community! 

We don't know how it is possible, but with each passing year, the farm trip seems to get better and better! This year, they learned and interacted with chickens, pickled vegetables and planted micro-plants. They made their own lunches from the harvested vegetables and donated the produce from the farm to the Illinois Food Depository.

They ended the evening taking a night walk to stargaze and remember the promise that God made to Abraham to turn us into as many stars as there are in the sky.

At CJDS, we are devoted to the idea of exploring our environment and acquainting ourselves with the sights, smells and culture of our surrounding community.
