PEORIA, Ill. -- A recent "One Class at a Time" grant winner began putting that money to good use on Wednesday.

Fifth-graders from Quest Charter Academy took a field trip to the Hult Health Education Center.

The grant helped pay for the bus transportation to take them there.

The counselor and life-skills teacher from Quest says the chance to take students outside the classroom to learn is a valuable experience.

"Kids are up and they're moving and they're learning, not just by listening to someone but by actually doing something," explained Marlene Leitch. "And sometimes by having a new location, a new presenter, it really helps to have some different people."

Next week the 6th-graders from Quest Charter Academy will get to visit the Hult Health Education Center.
