Students Treated to Day at the Beach

(La Porte, IN) - About 300 grade school students in La Porte were treated to a day at the beach and other outdoor activities to celebrate the end of the school year.


Students in all grade levels at Riley Elementary School were taken to Stone Lake Beach.  Principal Kristen Doty said the children played in the sand, attended physical education classes at nearby Lions Field and made water balloons.  The librarian also read stories to the students in a nearby wooded area.


Doty said the students were also treated to lunch and a snack before returning to the school five hours later.


“The kids has a good time. One little girl said this was the best day of her life. Of course, she was a kindergartner,” she said.


Doty said there about 350 people, including staff members, went on the outdoor field trip a short distance from the school on Weller Avenue
