Elizabeth MacTavish, a seventh-grade science teacher, inspired the idea to send Farragut Middle School’s top students on a four-day field trip to reward them for working hard throughout the year. The students had the opportunity to teach science classes at Manteo Elementary School in North Carolina.
This field trip of character involved a trip to a local charity to provide meals for over 350 students. It was a great success. Parents were impressed and other students were encouraged to do their best in school.
We are excited to see students building good character by giving back to the community in more ways than one.
Good character makes a difference.
