Field Trips

The PTO sponsors and coordinates fields trips for every class, grades K-6.  The PTO covers the cost of admission and bussing for each student. In addition, the PTO provides a class t-shirt to every student to be worn on their field trip and on their field day.  Students must pack a lunch or order through the cafeteria.

Field trips require parent chaperones. Teachers are responsible for selecting chaperones, and each classroom teacher selects between 3 and 5 parents. This process usually begins in late January/early February. To chaperone a field trip you must have your green clearance ($27 fee for all 3 clearance must be paid by chaperone) and pay a $15 fee to attend the field trip.
