activities. It really taught them
about leadership, time manage-
ment and how to be organized.”
McNeill and Werner have a
long history with the program.
Both came to outdoor school as
sixth graders when they attend-
ed Mapleton elementary, and
both volunteered as camp
councilors for two years as high
school students. They were
never at the camp at the same
time until this year.
From 1962 to 2003, the out-
door camp was an annual event
for sixth graders. In 2004,
because of budgetary issues,
the program was changed to
biennial and was opened up to
the fifth grade so that every stu-
dent would have an opportunity
to participate.
The program is still wholly
funded by the school district,
with no charge to the students
or parents.
Campers were split
into three groups,
learning different field
studies each day. They
also had time to play
in between activities.

Florence Community PTA
volunteers and school staff
hope this report will raise
awareness of the school’s focus
on excellence, and increase
support and collaboration with-
in the community to promote
student success.
The report is not only an
end-of-year communication
about the state of partnerships
at the school but also a way to

As part of Florence
Community PTA’s partnership
with Siuslaw Elementary
School to complete the
National School of Excellence
program, PTA has released a
Report to the Community.
Research shows that when
families and schools work
together, student achievement
increases, schools improve and
communities grow stronger.
Florence PTA volunteers and
Elementary School staff have
been working on the School of
Excellence program since last
fall. One outcome of the proj-
ect is the release of the May
2015

“We live in an area where
there are so many natural
resources. We teach them about
the environment and how to
take care of it,” McNeill added.
The campers were broken
down into three groups, learn-
ing different field studies each
day.
One group participated in
water and soil studies, includ-
ing testing different sources of
water to see if it is safe to drink,
studying different layers of soil
and sediment and learning how
soil is eroded by water.
The second group learned
about maps and survival. They
were taught to use compasses
with maps and how to build
shelters in the wild.
The third group studied
wildlife. Part of the field study
exercise was to examine owl
pellets. These pellets are made
up of the parts of prey the owls
cannot digest so they regurgi-
tate what appear to be pellets.
By picking the pellets apart, the
students discovered what kind
of animals the owl has eaten.
Craig and Janette Childers
from Bay Street Grille catered
all the meals. A typical break-
fast included bacon and eggs.
One of the more popular lunch-
es was grilled cheese sand-
wiches and tomato soup.
Spaghetti was a dinner favorite.
One night, the students got to
make their own tinfoil dinners,
cooked over open fires.
S’mores were a nightly after-
dinner treat.
The fifth- and sixth-grade
campers weren’t the only ones
to benefit from the outdoor
school experience.
“When you are living togeth-
er 24 hours a day for this long,
you get to know people in a
whole different way,” McNeill
said. “We could see a bond
develop between the high
school councilors; the team-
work that developed as they
planned lessons and executed
