Students in Michele Zeidler's kindergarten class at Crosslake Community School recently celebrated the birthday of John Chapman (Johnny Appleseed) and made homemade applesauce. Here, Christian Mertens stirred the apples. Many students preferred the taste of the homemade applesauce to that bought in the store.
Crosslake Community School students Makayla Mullin and Bethy Strand sawed wood last month at the Festival of Adventures in Aitkin. The school's fourth- through sixth-graders witnessed and participated in different aspects of the history of the Aitkin area at the festival, where re-enactors portrayed characters to demonstrate the way pioneer people lived.
