Sheepdog Trials: Sunset Elementary School, Colorado

A day at the Meeker Classic Championship Sheepdog Trials in Meeker, Colorado

Our friends from Sunset Elementary School in Craig, Colorado USA, have spent a day at the Meeker Classic Championship Sheepdog Trials in Meeker, Colorado and shared with us this video. The Meeker Classic Championship Sheepdog Trials are held in Meeker, Colorado, every year. Handlers come from all around the world to compete. There are lots of sheep raised in their area and the ranchers use border collies to herd the sheep. They learned all about sheep, the dogs, and the contest in school then traveled to the trials for a firsthand experience. Our friends have also promised to put together a digital story that tells more about it for us! Mrs. Cheryl Arnett, we are really so excited to work on joint projects for the second year and we wish you all the best for the new school year. THANK YOU

I can't tell you how much your thoughtful words mean to me, Mr. Amine! Working with Rawya has been one of the most positive experiences I have had in my years teaching. I am so happy to know she has the support of her school! She is my friend and an inspiration to my teaching! Have a wonderful school year and thank you again,
