Bagels, fruit, coffee etc will be provided.

4th and 5th Grade Trip
Apr 20 – Apr 22 all-day

Each year, 4th and 5th grade students, chaperones and teachers spend time visiting a location that is a bit farther from home than a simple field trip. Students plan their trip with their teachers and research the sights they’ll see.

Grandparents/Special Friends Day – Parent Participation
Apr 25 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Grandparents/Special Friends Day - Parent Participation

Grandparent and Special Friends Day is a time when students of all ages enjoy sharing their school with relatives, neighbors and friends. It is not an event with a presentation or formal tours. Instead, it’s a time where the children can take relatives or family friends through a typical day, showing them some of their favorite works, where they eat lunch, the woods, etc. Classroom teachers are available to answer any questions that may arise.

(6-9) Camping / Community Trip
May 13 – May 14 all-day

(6-9) level students practice the independence and confidence they’ve built throughout the year in a new setting with new challenges at Camp Ernst. Students receive encouragement and cheers of support from teachers, classmates and parent chaperones as they wobble across rope bridges, glide through treetops on zip lines and rope swings, ring bells on climbing walls, paddle kayaks, and more. It’s a wonderful time to get to know one another better on this 2-day and 1-night adventure while watching students’ confidence soar as they reach one milestone after another.
