GVSU Field Trip - On the Bus!
On CHA-D's recent trip to Grand Valley State University we got to take a comfy cozy charter bus from Turner Tours! DVD player and bathroom onboard made the 3 hour one way trip a breeze (pun intended, we went on March 8, the day of the wind storms!)
GVSU Field Trip - Staff
CHA-D allowed staff from all three Detroit campus' to attend and we had a blast! From left: Ms. Owens (East), Ms. Gonzalez (Southwest), Ms. Jackson (Southwest), Mr. Maes (Central)
GVSU Field Trip - Campus Library
Ms. Gonzalez (Southwest) is modeling in one of the 'quiet rooms' at the on-campus library. Such a cool facility! Cubbies to study or nap in, charging stations all over the place, desks, computers, books, resources, natural light and even robots!
GVSU Field Trip - Group Photo Op!
Photos from a field trip to Grand Valley State University. All three CHA-Detroit Academies were represented. The students had a blast and were awesome representatives of CHA and Detroit!
