Last week, our fourth grade students were able to enjoy the beauty of God’s creation as they snowshoed around Crater Lake. They were to go the week prior, but due to weather, had to cancel. Praises to Jesus – an opportunity opened up for them to reschedule!

Crater Lake was memorable as always! Students did the Rim Walk, participated a “hide & seek” game as snowshoe hares trying to survive from a Sierra Red Fox, ran or slid down Ranger Hill, worked as scientists in collecting data for a 20-year study of Mountain Hemlock trees, snowshoed for about 2 miles,  had a snowball fight ….wow!!! A huge answer to prayer as we had to cancel the week prior due to inclement weather…we had snow, a bit of wind, and some sunshine today! Beautiful!!! – Mrs. Amann, 4th grade teacher

We had a wonderful time and were extremely grateful to get to experience snowshoeing at this gorgeous park–especially considering that this very same field trip had been canceled the previous week due to bad weather! As a result we all felt like not only was our chance to gain a spot with the park to reschedule a miracle (this event had been planned since October and always fills up quickly with local schools!) but that the chance to view God’s masterpiece as a body of believers was as an even greater one.

You can see that the weather was still a bit extreme; 6 inches of fresh snow had fallen early that morning. We arrived to snow covered roads and the Lake hidden behind thick fog. But it wasn’t long before the fog rolled away and we were blessed with patches of blue skies and very little wind. – Mrs. Preszler, 4th grade teacher

Thank you to Jack Cook (CCHS Class of 1999) and Mrs. Amann for the pictures!
