We believe that learning extends outside the classroom, and Marie Reed teachers take full advantage of the region’s rich resources to enrich students’ learning experiences. Families can expect students in K-5 to participate in approximately one field trip per 6-8 weeks, which is related to their current unit of study. Students in preschool and pre-kindergarten participate in approximately one field trip per quarter. Families will be notified in writing in advance for each field trip and must grant written permission for each individual field trip. Parent chaperones are welcome on field trips but must be arranged in advance with the sponsoring teacher. From time to time, it may be necessary to require a parent or guardian to accompany their child on a field trip if supervision is a concern.
