We believe that learning is enriched by extending the learning outside the school, into the community, working with experts in the field, whether in the classroom or away from the school. These educational excursions and guest presentations engage our students in meaningful experiences and are a means of integrating the disciplines of study.
Every trip, activity or excursion that is planned must be approved by school administration and meet the standard of CBE’s rigorous on and off campus guidelines. This requires principals and teachers to be diligent about completing the appropriate forms and submitting these forms, well in advance of the scheduled trip or activity.
Once the trip or activity has been approved, we are then in a position to send home forms that will give you information about the event and require your signature. When your child is preparing to go on a field trip, you may receive up to 2 or 3 forms.
All activities are considered compulsory and an essential part of the school’s curriculum. There may be costs associated with planned field trips, physical education activities and guest presenters. However, no child will be denied the opportunity to participate in classroom activities and field trips based on an inability to pay activity costs. If your family is experiencing difficulties with associated costs, please contact the school.
