6th Grade PLUM


PLUM is an annual tradition at Pine Lane for 6th grade students and their teachers.  Its purpose is threefold.  First, it reinforces environmental science units taught at Pine Lane by supplementing the Geology and Environmental Science standards which we teach in the Douglas County Schools.  Second, it provides students with the opportunity to learn “life” skills such as the confidence to meet new challenges and living more independently.  Third, the time together with their classmates and teachers develops trust and cooperation which, in turn, builds a stronger “community of learners” when everyone returns to Pine Lane.

Stone Canyon Outdoor Edventures - During our Outdoor Education program, we strive to transform how students experience learning and education. The students at Stone Canyon receive outstanding instruction in an engaging environment, opportunities to step outside of their comfort zone, and unique experiences to foster social and emotional growth.  

The Stone Canyon Instructor team provides the majority of the instruction and facilitation to visiting students over the course of their trip. Our highly trained and enthusiastic staff will utilize a wide variety of teaching techniques to make each learning opportunity memorable, while taking every precaution to maintain the physical and emotional safety of each camper. 


Due to the extension of the school closures through April 30th by Governor Polis, our 6th grade PLUM trip has now officially been cancelled.


  • Payments you have made in My School Bucks towards your students PLUM trip will be refunded.
  • I hope to have these completed by end of the day tomorrow Friday April 3rd.
  • Please note any money that was applied to your students PLUM account that was waived due to King Soopers cards or, the Pie Fundraiser, will NOT be credited back to your student.  
  • Unfortunately we may not receive our deposit back from Stone Canyon for this trip, the Money raised from the fundraiser, and King Soopers Card money earned will be used to offset this cost.


  • If you had already dropped off medication to the school, we will notify you as soon as we know what arrangements have be made to pick up those medications.
