April Field Trips

We have three field trips this month, one of the 20th, one on the 21st, and one on the 26th. 
April 24 - Life Skills Scavenger Hunt

Dress Code: Business Casual. This means slacks, knee length or longer skirts, polo shirt, blouse, or button up shirt. Walking shoes are encouraged. Jacket is a must. No sweats, jeans, sweatshirts, or t shirts. Students that show up to school in attire that does not meet this requirement will stay at school. 

Lunch: Everyone will need $7.00 for lunch.

Cell Phone/Camera: Yes

Chaperones: Mrs. Brinker, Mrs. Masterson, Mrs. Prisel, Mr. Hodson

Times: 8:30 - 3:30 (Be prepared to be late returning)

April 26 - BPA Lab Tour
Dress Code: Regular uniforms but no skirts or sandals. Everyone must have closed toe shoes on.

Lunch: We will eat before we leave. 

Cell Phone/Cameras: No


Times: 11:45 - 3:30

We need at least 2 more chaperones for the 21st. Please take a moment to look at your schedule and see if you can join us for that day. 

 The parent chaperones need to have extreme self control because this particular trip will be challenging, both for the students and for the parent. 

Student teams will start at school where they will be given their first clue in the Amazing Race. 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 21st, 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

Current Chaperones: 
Mrs. Masterson
Mrs. Prisel
Mrs. Brinker
Mr. Hodson
