Lee students enjoy field trip at President's Home

June 4, 2014

Children from Lee Expressive Arts Elementary School enjoyed their annual end-of-year field trip at the President’s Home at Stephens College today.

While older students played Frisbee and competed in cardboard box races—requiring them to roll down the lawn inside a box—younger children ran egg and water races and decorated the sidewalks with chalkboard art.
“We love being Partners in Education with Lee and hosting their field day,” Stephens President Dianne Lynch said. “There are always such great games and activities.”

Having the President’s Home property near the school is “phenomenal,” said Lee Principal Karen Burger.
While the field trip is held annually, the school often uses the property for outdoor physical education classes.
“We have a soccer field which is also used for recess but otherwise we’re a little landlocked,” Burger said. “We’re really grateful to have the opportunity to use this space when the weather is nice.”

The field trip marks the last full day of school and celebrates the end of the school year, which concludes tomorrow.
