Plan Ahead For Amazing Science Field Education Trips
Arcade students are extremely lucky to have the opportunity to take their science learning to the next level by taking field education trips to amazing locations, like the Sierra Nevada and Santa Cruz Mountains. These experience packed trips are an additional opportunity for your child to extend their learning into the natural world.
Each grade’s trip is different as is the cost per student, but most overnight field trips cost between $300-$500. There are limited Field Education Trip Fee assistance funds* available for those in need. Specific sign up information has been distributed by your science teachers, and families can begin budgeting for these spring field education trips now. Monthly payments may be arranged once the trip deposits have been made.
Any student wishing to attend science field education trips must meet certain minimum behavior and academic standards (no “U”s & GPA of 2.3) and may forfeit part or all of the Trip Fee if barred from a trip for academic or behavioral reasons.
*If your student will need financial assistance for their Trip Fees, please contact your teacher immediately. Trip Fee assistance is provided to qualified applicants on a first requested-first provided basis until available funds are distributed. Due to limited Trip Fee assistance funds, not all qualified applicants will receive assistance. All requests for Trip Fee assistance will be handled in a confidential and respectful manner by school and PTO personnel.
