WESTOVER —May is a month filled with field trips for the Harmony Elementary School. After fundraising all year, Harmony Education Boosters rewards the students by sending each grade on a special field trip.
On May 9, the kindergarten students will be traveling to Altoona for a tour of the Altoona Fire Station. Afterwards, the students get to go to Slinky Action Zone, the “Funnest Place in Town!”
For their field trip, first-grade students will go to the local Rosebud Mine in Cherry Tree, and other locations throughout the community, on May 23.
The second-grade students will get a tour of the WJAC-TV news station in Johnstown for their field trip on May 1.
This week, the third-grade students are taking their trip to the Jaffa Shrine Circus in Altoona. Students will see elephants, tigers, monkeys and, of course, the Jaffa clowns.
The third-grade class will be attending the first circus show of the year.
On May 15, the fourth-grade students will be traveling to Huntingdon to visit Lincoln Caverns. Students will go on a cavern tour, where they will learn all about the cavern and everything in it.
They will also get a chance to shop in the gift shop, which features a rock and mineral section.
The fifth-grade students are going to the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh for their field trip. The science center trip will give the students an opportunity to learn science hands-on. With all of the fun activities, this is one of the most memorable field trips at Harmony.
The sixth-grade students will get a chance to watch the Altoona Curve (a farm team of the Pittsburgh Pirates) play on May 21. The Curve will be playing the Akron Aeros at home.
After hard work and PSSA testing, the elementary students deserve these fun field trips.
