Even though a surge of warm weather early this week caused a fair amount of melting, the remaining deep snow cover on the hill behind Oconto Falls Elementary provided a great opportunity for students to test their skills at using snowshoes.
Each student in third, fourth, and fifth grade gets an hour long experience on the snowshoes as part of Rochell Otto’s physical education classes. This is part of her program each year when the snow conditions are right. Last year students did not have a chance to use them because of limited snow. Obviously, this was a fun activity based on the smiles on these travelers. Experience the great outdoors is a priority for these students and visitors to the Oconto Falls area.
