3rd and 4th Beechnau Students on a Field Trip to the Apple Store.

We recently went to the Apple Store in the Woodland Mall for a FREE Field Trip! We enjoyed creating a song in Garage Band on an ipad.  Then the staff burned it to a CD for each student! They also include a free t-shirt and certificate! The staff at the store is very organized, fun and works really well with the students.  In the afternoon we went to Fred Meijer Gardens to see the butterflies, gardens and art.  It was a fabulous day.
