YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK — “We’re on our way to Yellowstone” was the cry of Mr. Hatch’s sixth-grade class on Monday, Nov. 6. This trip has been a highlight for students at Cokeville Elementary since 2003. Students begin preparing for this incredible trip when they enter elementary school as they participate in fundraisers each year to help fund this amazing opportunity.
The bus pulled out Monday morning at 5:30, arriving in Yellowstone at 2:30 p.m. They were greeted by rangers who assisted and participated with them throughout the week. They were given a tour, unpacked and then it was off to their first hike of the week. They learned from the rangers about all the sights and sounds they would observe and hear and the importance of looking for items that represented Yellowstone.
