Today our Calo students are on a field trip. They are at Kauffman Stadium, the home of the Kansas City Royals, in Kansas City, Missouri for a yearly event entitled, School Day at the K. This event has been a work in progress over the past several weeks, purely by the efforts of a few staff members and the voices of our Calo students.
Some months ago, our Calo Student Council represented our student body with a proposal suggesting "bigger and better". Weekly, our Calo students attend different events off campus and connect with members in the community. A request to the Student Council prompted further discussion and ultimately a proposal requesting quarterly events that as the students say are "really cool".
This quarter, our students are attending School Day at the K. The Calo group left campus bright and early this morning and made the 3 hour drive to Kauffman Stadium for a day of educational activities and fun. An impressive and interactive lesson on meteorology was presented by the local news and weather teams, to be followed by lunch and then the students will watch the Kansas City Royals take on the Baltimore Orioles. What a fun way to spend a beautiful spring day!
