Hello. My name is Noah Mortola and I am here to tell you why you should keep Outdoor School for fifth-graders. I mean why isn’t it good? Whatever idiotic person said fifth-graders should not to go to Outdoor School? Horrible idea. Outdoor School educates children with the power of nature instead of being cooped up in a classroom all day for six hours. You learn how to survive in the wilderness with sticks, branches, and trees and stuff. You learn how to become independent with your journal writing. You also have to know where to go and when to be there, which helps your time management. The “overnight” is a great experience for fifth-graders and I think the PTA and whatever organization does this should keep it forever.
