Ginger Rackley’s fifth grade class at Saluda Elementary recently went on its last Muddy Sneakers field trip of the year.

Muddy Sneakers field trips are designed to enrich student knowledge through experiential education in an outdoor setting where students connect with the land, become more active and gain in self-confidence while improving science aptitude.

Saluda students learned more about aquatic ecosystems on this trip, making it truly a “muddy sneakers” day.
