Trip to the Lakefront

Mandeville Elementary is very fortunate to be close to the lakefront! Students in Ms. Montreuil’s class work as a team following the FISH philosophy. The students have worked hard to earn compliments for the “Class Compliment Chain". Every time a teacher, administrator, or parent compliments the class, they earn a link for the chain. Once the chain gets to the floor, the students get to brainstorm ideas for a reward. They voted on a walking field trip to Sunset Point. The students observed nature and wildlife on the way. They saw turtles, tadpoles, lizards, and fish in the ecosystem. They talked about Lake Pontchartrain and how important it is to Mandeville, not to mention how beautiful it is! They also tracked how far was walked and the calories burned. This was good, because the students were given a small ice cream from a parent volunteer to enjoy while sitting on the pier.
