The Holy Rosary Sixth Graders and their First Grade “Buddies” came to New Bremen on Wednesday. They visited the Lock Keeper’s House and learned about life along the canal and how the lock system worked.
Next they gathered in the Lock One Theater where they saw a short video on bicycle history. Following the video the “Buddies” toured three levels of bicycles on display and had the opportunity to ride a high wheel and take their buddies for a ride in a pedal car.
Lunch at the Crown Pavilion offered sharing of ideas, experiences, and food to complete the field trip. The Buddy system opens up friendships and mentoring that is special for students.
