More than 500 students, staff, parent volunteers and friends from Cascade Brook School in Farmington braved uncertain weather on an October day this week to challenge the Weld Mountains.

A mix of fourth, fifth and sixth graders, with three or more adults in each group, were assigned to summit Tumbledown, Mount Blue, Blueberry or Bald Mountain.

The hike is part of a school-wide project attempted at the beginning of each year. The reasons behind the strenuous day of activities are many, teachers say. Most talk about teamwork, having to cooperate with each other to get to the top of the mountain. Or they talk about how to learn what it’s like to climb a mountain: the student sets a goal (the summit) and works hard to reach that goal, while making new friends. And in the process, they create a community of caring students who ensure a successful school year.
