Rendezvous Brings History Alive
After learning about Idaho history all year, our more than 800 4th graders will have the chance to attend a real life Rendezvous this week. The annual event is reminiscent of the gatherings trappers, miners and Mountain Men held a long, long time ago. Students have the chance to take part in a variety of activities such as gold panning, square dancing, learning about Idaho's plants and animals and more. Thank you to all the teachers and community volunteers who make this event possible.
