Greetings Ospreys,

Osprey Week adventures are coming to a close and we're excited to hear all the stories from the field when students return to the Nest after Spring Break.

Expeditions and excursions can include challenging moments, such as navigating unexpected weather or working through hiccups in group dynamics, but we know that in the end, there is much to be gained. This week has included so many sweet moments. Lessons learned and relationships forged will make their way into classrooms and may even inspire some Ospreys to think differently about their lives.

We are grateful to our staff for all the hard work it requires to create these unique experiences and to our families for entrusting us with their kids and recognizing the value of using the world as our classroom.
