CA’s Kindergarten thru third grade classes enjoyed a field trip on Monday, December 2nd to the City of Valley’s Carousel to begin the Christmas season. In all, 46 students attended the outing along with their teachers and numerous parental chaperones. The children at Chambers Academy were fortunate to be the first school outing of the season to enjoy a class field trip on behalf of the local parks and recreation program to the popular carousel. The Christmas Merry-Go-Round has been an annual tradition in the Greater Valley since originally being gifted to benefit area children by the West Point Manufacturing Company in 1956.
The CA students enjoyed their holiday outing riding the carousel with the sounds of Christmas music filling the air. The popular carousel has been operating annually now for 63 years serving as the centerpiece of the historic Langdale Mill Christmas Village. The students also enjoyed a special lunch outing at the Valley Dairy Queen with many of their parents or grandparents able to join them for the outing.
