Donner Party History Seen in Snow.
After reading the story "Patty Reed's Doll: The Story of the Donner Party", 3rd and 4th graders got out of the classroom and into the SNOW.  Yes, this year during the historical week (when the famous Donner Party got trap by snow) students were knee deep in snow as they visited the Donner Memorial Museum, near Donner Lake.

Patty Reed's Treasures
The museum displayed some of the cherished items Patty Reed kept with her during the journey, including her doll.

It was a beautiful day in God's Creation. What a great group of students and their parents.
