Field trips are an important part of school activities. Trips/events that take place during the school day are chosen because they enhance the curriculum. Attendance at these field trips is strongly encouraged.
Permission forms for field trips must be returned by the due date to allow the planners to make the final arrangements for transportation, class coverage, and payments to the service provider. Students are reminded that it is their responsibility to take the form home, have it read and signed by a parent/guardian and to return the form to school by the due date. Students not returning forms by the due date will not be permitted to attend the field trip. In some cases, trips may need to be cancelled if sufficient numbers of forms are not returned.
Students who do not attend scheduled trips will be expected to attend school as usual. Teachers will provide alternate assignments for students unable to go on a particular trip.
If a school trip is cost-prohibitive, please call the teacher in charge and the school will work with the parent to ensure no student misses out!
Sailing and Quebec Trips
We are looking forward to our Grade 9 sailing and Grade 8 Quebec trips in the spring of 2019. We have twenty-five grade nines ready to set sail with Ms. Zakus, Ms. Paxton and Mr. Scollard in May. We have eight grade eight students ready to invade Quebec during the last week of May and first week of June. Ms. Moore will lead the first group of travellers along with Mr. Littel, Mr. Braynen, Ms. Hassett, and Ms. Kaminski. Ms. Price will lead the second group along with Mr. O’Shaughnessy, Mr. Pentney, Ms. Hug, and Ms. Morrison. Fundraising initiatives for these trips will begin shortly.
