Northern Middle School sixth grade students sailed on a skipjack, built in 1902, with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.  The students recently spent the day on the Chesapeake Bay learning about oysters, water quality, and sailing.  Mrs. Lorie Burdock, teacher, was  thrilled her students wrote environmental essays to earn their seats on the boat.  "Sailing and learning on the water was an incredible experience for all of us."
