ACSD sponsoring Kindness, Courage and Respect retreats for students through Youth Frontiers organization again this year

The Allamakee Community School District (ACSD)will once again be sponsoring a number of retreats for its students in November. Youth Frontiers, an organization from Minneapolis, MN, will host the retreats.  Youth Frontiers is a non-profit organization in existence since 1987 and has delivered over 795 retreats this year to over 120,000 students.
Youth Frontiers’ retreats act as a catalyst for students.  By taking an entire grade offsite (to Village Creek Bible Camp again this year), Youth Frontiers challenges those students to bring respect back to the hallways of the school.  These retreats will focus on Kindness, Courage and Respect. Ultimately, students become engaged in making the school a place where students and teachers are respected and both are challenged to learn to maximize their full potential.
