On May 22, the students and staff of Jim Thorpe Academy took a field trip to the ranch of Jeri Parker, the math and science teacher at the alternative school. The students had spent weeks constructing hot air balloons in her class and the wide open space was the perfect launching spot. The students also had an opportunity to go fishing, play volleyball, pitch horseshoes and participate in a “country” scavenger hunt. Students also had hot dogs, potato salad and s’mores. The students spent the afternoon on the 300-acre ranch and will return for activities next year.
