Students Enjoy Ice Fishing

by SJHS webstaff - Tuesday, February 27, 2024

This past week, approximately 50 students had the opportunity to try their hand at ice fishing. Mr. Benjamin's and Mr. Grandy's Outdoor Pursuits classes loaded up in a school bus for a field trip tp Renforth for the better part of the day. For most students, this was their first ice fishing experience. Mr. Grandy and Mr. Benjamin expertly explained the process and procedures, and Mr. Grandy augered 29 holes in the ice. In the chilly weather, the students huddled together in the portable ice shelters waiting for the first bites. Mr. Grandy caught the first fish of the day. As is customary in the Outdoor Pursuits classes, he had to perform the secret ritual. A few fish were caught throughout the day, but more importantly, the Greyhounds truly represented garnering praise on social media from a fellow fisherman. Our students impressed by respecting their environment, working together, supporting one another, and when they left, the area was all cleaned- they left not a trace. Safe to say, a good time was had by all!
