On March 30, the fifth grade traveled to Fairfield for a field trip to Camp Floyd. The students had the opportunity to learn about the Civil War and learn about the history of Johnson's Army. They made adobe bricks and dipped candles. They rode in the Pony express, attended school in 1861 and visited the commissary and the Stagecoach Inn. We found out that our presenter, Mr. Mark Trotter, was retiring that day. It was his last field trip and we had the honor. KSL was there to honor this man and had a feature on him on the news.
