Mt Evertt's newest club took its first field trip this year! The New Day Club, a club to support our newest bilingual students, visited The Berkshire Museum, where we studied Ancient Explorations and took in the entire collection. We then headed to La Fogata for a delicious Columbian lunch! The students thoroughly enjoyed their day! It was everyone's first field trip since Covid and the enjoyment of being out together was contagious. The New Day Club is currently fundraising for future educational trips. The Berkshire Museum visit was free and the students paid their way at La Fogata.
