Tenth Graders Learn the Ropes of Teamwork

Last week MICDS Upper Schoolers celebrated a Day of Community, participating in grade-level activities focused on intellectual, social, and emotional learning opportunities beyond the classroom.

Tenth graders took the opportunity to visit Camp Wyman in Eureka for high-ropes course challenges and team-building activities. These activities tested their leadership, perseverance, teamwork, and communication skills in engaging ways. In addition, students participated in groups with peers they don’t normally interact with on a daily basis. Throughout all activities, many students pushed past fear or discomfort to problem-solve and achieve individual and group goals.

Ian Boon ’25, tenth-grade Class President, said, “We learned many new things, including how to trust each other and to bring bug spray. Overall our class had a fun time and enjoyed our academics-free day.”

Great job, tenth graders, on building skills, strengthening positive relationships, and making new connections in the name of teamwork!
