Overtones Music Studio Field Trip

Back in June, our group had 5 days of field trips to Overtones Music Studio in Denham Springs.  They were so gracious to provide teachers for each day in order to accommodate our large group. 

They had different stations set up with different instructors so that they children could get a taste of different musical instruments as well as different music programs that they offer.

K-9 Police Field Trip

Back in May, we went to the K-9 Division of the East Baton Rouge Police Department.  They have set these up for us in the past for our group and have always done an excellent job for our children.

For this field trip, they had the SWAT team with their vehicles, the helicopter police who flew in and landed for all the children, and the K-9 team with their dogs for a demo.  Each department talked to the children about their jobs, what's their requirements and what they do.

Due to the size of our group, we schedule 2 different days out there.  Here's a slide show of some pics from that day.
