Willow Bend Students Reached for the STAARs for a Special Reward

imageStudents in Willow Bend’s 5th Grade classes redeemed a very special reward this week! As an incentive to prepare for the STAAR Test, 5th grade science teacher Mrs. Weems promised students that worked hard during class a special trip to Carlsbad Caverns.

On Thursday, May 14 that prize was collected! Students traveled to New Mexico where they got to try some spelunking, took a three hour tour of the caverns, witnessed firsthand stalactites and stalagmites, and popcorn formations. It was a wonderful learning experience and adventure for all those in attendance, and a well deserved reward for the hard work and dedication these students have shown all year.
