Elementary students took a trip to the Discovery Center in Boise in April. Students had a great time exploring the center and interacting with the hands-on exhibit. Families were also invited to attend the trip with their students. Many families participated and it made it very special for those students.
Getting everyone together is a great time to build, maintain, and grow the relationships between school and home and this is very important to us at ISDB.
