Students at South Williamsport's PreK thru 8th grade Mountain View Christian School went on a number of field trips in May. Here is what some of them say about their experiences.
Owens Sheep Farm in Sunbury RD
By KAYLA, Grade 7
My school and I went to the Owens farm. They have a ton of animals there such as horses, pigs, bees (the farmer is a bee keeper) cats, dogs and lots of sheep. Well, we first saw the cats and dog (one of three border collies) the cats' names I don't know, but the Border collie we first met was Hannah. She specialized in herding sheep. She was friendly. The younger kids loved her. Anyway, so what we did there was see their new foal, he was so cute and he was only two days old. After that we went to see the brand new baby piglets as well - they were cute too. Then we walked around and saw cows, more dogs and finally sheep. We saw Hannah herd the sheep. It was very cool. After all of that we finally saw all the bees. They were awesome, and best of all they didn't sting anyone! Then after that we left.

My favorite thing about the sheep farm was seeing the baby sheep. I liked going to the park afterward and playing on the music center also.

Home Care Center
By KAYLA?, Grade 7
Our school went to the Lewisburg Home Care Center. We saw lots of different things like c-pap machines (they help you breathe at night if you have that problem) and wheelchairs (which we got to ride in "fun"), walkers and other health equipment. It was fun and surprisingly a large building. It was a very interesting visit.

Lewisburg Recreational Park
By KAYLA, Grade 7
My school and I went to the Lewisburg Recreational Park to eat lunch and play. We did this stop between two field trips - the Sheep Farm and the Home Health Center. It was hot that day and there was a shortage of water. But other than those minor problems we had a lot of fun. There was a ton of stuff to do there. You can go swimming, when it's open that is, you can play on their huge playground, watch the ducks and oh, I almost forgot - for those who enjoy skate boarding there a skateboard park there as well. I recommend going there just to hang out or maybe take a child you're babysitting? Whatever you choose to do there it most likely will be enjoyable.
I liked playing on the three playgrounds, and seeing the baby ducks. I also liked sitting in the shade with Trey.
I liked making a new friend named Leigh, and eating at the park.
I liked the slides.
I liked the slides and the ramps, and jumping on the bouncy thing.
I liked the music things and seeing the baby ducks.
I liked sliding on the tunnel slide.
Climbing the "web" and seeing the baby ducks.

My friend and I played "Pirates of the Caribbean."
