A Ponca Hills Round-Up

Ann Mactier

Just before school ended, Phoenix Academy rounded up our students for yet another successful Ponca Hills field trip.

This year, the school was divided into 4 groups, The Red Chestnuts, The Yellow Palomino’s, The Overo Orange’s, and The Black Stallion’s. Each group had a corresponding bandana. One at a time the groups went on a hike, a hayrack ride, a barn tour, and crafts. The craft was a paper horse and we brought back a large poster with a Phoenix Academy stampede!

Thanks Miss Sheila, from Blooms, for helping us with crafts.

We enjoyed a cookout with hot dogs, chips and lemonade. We learned about the horses and some of us even fed them carrots. We ended the afternoon with ice cream sandwiches. A special thanks to Kerry, Melanie, and the entire Ponca Hills team, for all their hard work and for making our day marvelous.
