“This is the cutest horse I’ve ever seen!” exclaimed fourth-grader Amelia Nagel Sept. 8 during Central Christian School’s annual School Day Out.
Nagel joined fellow elementary school students outside the school on the pleasant, sunny late summer day for a variety of activities including visits by horses from Stirrup Courage Equestrian Learning Center.
School Day Out has been a tried and true tradition at the beginning of nearly every school year for decades at the K-12 school in Kidron, which is committed to the Anabaptist faith.
Students, teachers and staff celebrate the day filled with worship, fellowship, organized games and social interaction in an outdoor setting to renew old relationships, and to help new students get to know classmates and teachers outside the classroom setting. Middle school students spent the day at Camp Luz and high school students traveled to Tuscora Park.
