The multiage students (grades 1 and 2) at Rangeley Lakes Regional School recently visited the Rangeley Region Guides and Sportsmenâ€™s Associationsâ€™ clubhouse in Oquossoc.Â The children were greeted by Elaine Holcombe and other members of the association who then guided them through the â€˜Story Trailâ€™.Â This special hike was immensely enjoyed by the children because it highlighted a delightful tale called the â€œPossum and the Peeperâ€�.Â As the children traveled along the trail they would come upon a new page of the story. Â Anne Hunter, author and illustrator, has done a superb job in creating a whimsical story about animals awakening in the spring.Â Our classes loved the story and the experience and we hope this project continues year after year.
