In order for our students to truly understand the world we live in and the diverse population we share it with, they need to experience different places. Students throughout their school years will have the opportunity to travel locally, statewide, nationally and internationally so that they may experience the world firsthand.
NatureBridge - Olympic National Park
Students in 5th grade will begin their year by traveling to the Olympic National Forest to participate in 5 days of outdoor environmental science learning at NatureBridge. This experience will allow many of them their first opportunity to experience a rain forest environment. When they return they will dive into an environmental sustainability project with their teachers in order to address local, national and international challenges with keeping our environment safe for future generations to come.
Students will have the opportunity to participate in an 8th grade trip to Costa Rica coordinated in partnership with Global Travel Alliance. The purpose of this trip is to be immersed in another culture for 8-10 days. This is a great opportunity for students to practice their Spanish, open and international mindedness and to challenge themselves to do something that is out of their comfort zone. Students will need to fundraise for the trip and secure a passport. The school will do limited fundraising to help support students who qualify for partial scholarships.
For more information on securing a passport for your student, please visit the Department of State website HERE. Please note that a passport may take up to 6-8 weeks to be completed.
