Muddy Sneakers seeking Field Instructors for Fall 2019!

Mountain View Intermediate School will be offering the Muddy Sneakers program to ALL of our 5th-grade students next year.  This program provides 6 field experiences (4 off-site and 2 on the school campus) that correlate with the science standards for 5th grade.  Because we have such a large group, they are looking to hire part-time instructors for their program.

Also, if you would like to learn more about this program or how you can sponsor a student or team, please contact Jennifer Love at jennifer.love@macon.k12.nc.us.  The total cost is $50.00 per student for ALL 6 field experiences.
