Upcoming Field Trips

We have 5 field trips left this year! If spring fever is blooming at your house, please remember that students who have chronically late or missing work will need to stay on campus instead of attending field trips. Now, let's talk about the fun things! 

March 17th - Portland Art Museum and Oregon Culinary Institute
Oregon Culinary Institute lesson on formal etiquette and a visit to the art museum for an art lesson. We will be leaving school at approximately 9:30 and return by 1:30 in time for American Bandstand. 
Dress Code - DRESSY (skirt and heels, slacks and button up shirts with ties)

Scheduled Chaperones: 
Mrs. Haight
Mrs. Peterson
Mrs. Vanek
Mr. Crittenden
Mrs. Richardson


April 22nd - Downtown Scavenger Hunt
For this  field trip  I will need 5 adventurous parents. The parent chaperones need to have extreme self control because this particular trip will be challenging, both for the students and for the parent. 

Teams of four (and one adult) will be making their way around the city using only public transportation. Along the way they will need to complete tasks, find information, and work together while attempting to be the first team back to school. 

If you are adventurous, willing to stand back and watch the students figure things out while ensuring safety, and are available on the 22nd, please let me know right away! 

It's going to be great fun and one huge learning experience. 

This much fun can't be educational right? Wrong! Students will learn/practice: 
1. Using public transportation (MAX, bus, and street car)
2. Self reliance
3. Using maps
4. Reading charts and tables
5. Teamwork
6. Budgeting
7. Reading labels
8. Problem solving
9. Effective search terms
10. Questioning techniques

Dress Code: Regular Uniform

Scheduled Chaperones:
Mr. Crittenden
