NEENAH, Wis. (WFRV) - One teacher in the Neenah School District went above and beyond for her students to start the school year off with a bang.

She found out a way to take her classroom outside.

 Tricia Retzlaff, a teacher at Lakview Elementary, is taking her students sailing.

 She believes in field trips that enhance not only student academics, but also classroom dynamics.

 And for Retzlaff's 13 fourth and fifth grade students, nothing says back to school bonding like a week of long sailing techniques class.
