Field Trips

Field trips are an integral part of our elementary curriculum. They are designed to enhance classroom learning, build relationships, and encourage family networking. Outreach opportunities are also provided on a year-by-year basis. Field trips take place primarily on University Model® satellite classroom days. Room moms work closely with teachers to organize class field trips and outings. The following is a list of recent field trips:
