Little school on the prairie

In a lot of metro school districts, the last days of school often include a trip to Valleyfair or a day playing outside, what with the grades already being in and all.

Out in Hendricks, Minnesota, though, the kids learn right up until the end. Each year there’s a field trip to the Lincoln County Pioneer Museum.

Our friend, Steve Hemmingsen, who writes a daily newsletter in town, reports that Dawn Leuning’s elementary class goes back in time in a big way.

It’s good to be a kid on the prairie.
