ESCAPE to the summer!

A final look at the year in our club…

We’ve wrapped up our 17th year of the ESCAPE Club, and are headed into the summer.  Yet again, we are grateful for the students who participated, and the relationships and experiences that we shared.  As well, we are grateful for so many teachers and volunteers who drive the kids to these fantastic destinations. Finally, for each of you, and your love, words of encouragement, prayer, finances, and support.

One of our proudest accomplishments this year was creating and distributing a memory book to each of the students and chaperones at the end of the year.  The booklet has a spread for each of our nine trips, which includes directions to, information about, and pictures from each of our destinations.  There’s even room for autographs, and it was fun to see our kids clutching them at the last meeting, laughing over the memories, and signing each others’ books.

We’ll see what developments, if any, come in our careers this summer and into the coming school year, and we’ll have to navigate an unusually high amount of teacher turnover at DeJean.  But for now, we’ll hope to be back for another year of ESCAPE Club at DeJean in the fall.

Hope you’ll take a look at the video below that shows each of the trips and all of the faces from the year.  Have a great summer, and we’ll hope to see each one of you soon!
