Floresville North Elementary School fifth-graders, 125 in all, took to the hills of the Texas Hill Country when they traveled to Camp Honey Creek in Hunt, to enhance their learning in the great outdoors. This is the third year that FNES has made the trip to Camp Honey Creek for their students to learn about science as well as enhance their math and reading skills. Students not only are involved in hands-on activities, they also record data in their camp journal. Back at school, students and teachers can then use the data recorded to further their studies. Students went in two groups, Sept. 24-26, Team Holman, Manak, and Simpson and Sept. 30-Oct. 1, Team Lansdale, Naranjo, and Smith. Several staff members went along to help, including first-grade teacher Jamie Hawn, third-grade teachers Sarah Bauer and Frank Soriano, fourth-grade teachers Daidra Chilek, Natalie Henke, and Terry Garza, fifth-grade teachers Johnda Lansdale, Melissa Naranjo, Jennifer Smith, Dorothy Holman, Patti Manak, and Tonya Simpson, RTI Math Specialist Kendra Burks, and Assistant Principal Laura Bippert.  . . .
