Field trips are a cherished part of the student experience, and we are committed to supporting our schools in providing these enriching opportunities.

Our dedicated staff often collaborates with Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs), non-profits, and other community entities to fund and organize these exciting learning adventures.

We encourage students, families, and the wider community to get involved and stay informed about our field trip schedule. If you have any questions or seek information about upcoming trips at specific schools, please don't hesitate to reach out to the main office at each school site.

Family/parent donations are a critical component of our field trip program. Prior to each trip, we send communication via ParentSquare with a link that provides more information on how to make a contribution to help us pay for these exciting experiences.
