8th Grade End-of-Year Field Trip-

Thank you to everyone who participated in the parent survey regarding the end-of-year celebration trip for 8th grade. The response was overwhelmingly in favor of Michigan’s Adventure. Thanks to a generous grant from the PTO, we're thrilled to announce a reduction in the estimated cost from $50 to $36 per student. The trip is scheduled for May 29. Our commitment to ensuring every student can attend remains steadfast, and we will offer scholarships as needed. Paperwork for the trip will be sent home in early May, giving parents ample time to prepare. Please note that the conditions for attending the trip align with those outlined in the contract for previous field trips:

  • No disciplinary infractions related to the use of any controlled substances (tobacco, vapes, etc.)
  • No disciplinary infractions related to fighting, physical violence, and/or threats
  • No disciplinary infractions related to bullying, harassment, hate speech, etc.

Thank you for your ongoing support.  Please reach out to Karen Legg (  if you have any questions.
