Shelby High School students all enjoyed a fun-filled and educational day while exploring the Blackfoot Pathways Sculpture Park in Lincoln, Mont.

On Wednesday, Oct. 13, Shelby High School students traveled to Lincoln, Mont. The trip included all freshmen through seniors, as well as most of the high school teachers. Students and teachers left Shelby at 8:30 a.m. and arrived at Lincoln around 11-11:15 a.m. Blackfoot Pathways Sculpture in the Wild Board President Becky Garland met students at the entrance and gave a short history of the park. Then, students roamed the sculpture exhibits at their own pace while they completed their guided notes.

Several teachers, including Kristi Calvery and Megan LaRouqe, collaborated to plan this field trip since it became an idea back in August at their first Teacher Professional Development Day. Calvery said she wanted to give the students a chance to learn outdoors in a tangible way.

“I think the confines of Covid-19 restrictions last year made this trip important and memorable. It was a great opportunity for cross-curricular learning and I am thankful we had the chance to be exposed interesting ideas and history captured by international artists,” she said.
