Review: Corkery Elementary

"I can't begin to tell you how wonderful the trip was for all the students! One girl told me how gross the bugs were, but then proceeded to explain all the ways that insects are beneficial. They came back exhausted but full of smiles and excitement. So did the teachers! "
- Carol Devens, Principal, Corkery School
