Our classroom and hallway will be decorated like campgrounds with treasure all around. I'm told that there will even be a world famous explorer walking around the building (and quite possibly a dinosaur). Each night will kick off with singing and a video from world famous explorer Harrison Jones who will talk to us each day about what it takes to
