What is the Excursion Program?
The Excursion Program is a once a week educational field trip program. The bus leaves at 9:00 AM and returns about 2:00 PM. This is a wonderful opportunity for families to build memories together while learning. Although students may be dropped off, parental involvement provides the best educational experience. Parents pay their own admission, but many trips are free or less than $10. Parents may also ride the bus, saving gas and parking.
Who is eligible for the Excursion Program?
It is open to K-5th grade children. The program is designed for parents willing and able to be their child’s primary teacher.
What is provided with the Excursion Program?
The program will provide bus transportation, admittance to destinations, related curricular materials, a certificated teacher and a program organizer.
