South Lewis Central School District has annually dedicated time to teaching a skill students may carry with them forever — hiking.
For the 22nd year, South Lewis fourth-graders will take a hiking trip to Bald Mountain.
Within just three weeks of the school year kickoff, the district will have had a fourth-grade cross-country run, eighth-grade and fifth-grade biking trips, and the Bald Mountain hike all completed.
