    About Field Trips 

    The school trips will be for students earning the required number of points. Students earn most of their points by wearing their school uniform, completing all homework and class work, always staying on task and following directions, having perfect attendance and demonstrating positive behavior. Students who meet these necessary requirements for the trips will either attend for free or for a minimal cost. Students who do not adhere to the necessary requirements will remain at the school.
    Students are always notified of upcoming trips and when their points start and stop for a trip. Parents will also be notified so you can encourage your child to earn the points needed. Due to the school paying the majority of the cost for the trips and buses, it is not possible for parents to chaperone on some of the trips. We always incorporate learning into all of our field trips.

    Upper School Field Trips and Social Events

    Each month, there will be field trips and/or social events sponsored by The Upper School Team.  In order for students to participate in quarterly field trips and social events, students will need to earn a minimum of 70% average in each category (homework, participation, independent work, and quizzes/tests) for all five of their Upper School subjects AND a minimum of 70% average in each of their resource classes.  The chart below shows the quarterly events that have been planned for school year 2014-2015.
