When Serendipity arrived at the Columbia Schoolhouse, they were taken back in time to March 26, 1861. They were met by Mr. Graham, the first principal of the first brick schoolhouse in the state of California. Each student is sitting properly, with their hands flat on the desk, their feet flat on the floor, and their backs straight and away from the backrest. Mr. Graham is performing the daily "inspection," in order to assess each student's cleanliness under their fingernails and behind their ears. After a few days at Sierra Outdoor School, I wonder if they passed!
A visit to the schoolhouse was a great way to end their Gold Rush Program. We hope you had a great time. We'll see you next year, Serendipity!
