We haven't had much luck with field trips this year. Our Toyota tour was cancelled due to snow and Astronomy Night was cancelled due to rain. Hopefully, we'll have better luck with your next scheduled field trip. We plan on canoeing on Pigeon Creek in late April as part of the Canoe Evansville program. We will be going on two different days (April 29th & 30th) with 30 students going each day. Be on the lookout of the permission slip and medical waiver release form needed to take part in the canoe trip. We are asking for $4 per student to cover the cost of canoeing and bus transportation.
We have two more exciting field trips that will go on regardless of the weather. We will be visiting North Junior High School as part of the "Welcome to the Pack" program NJHS puts on each May for incoming seventh grade students. This is always a fun day as students get to meet their seventh grade homeroom teacher along with other incoming students from Vogel, Scott, Evans and Oak Hill. Once again, students will be divided up over the course of three days to attend this trip (May 12th, 13th, & 14th).
On Friday, May 15th, we will be traveling to Bloomington, IN to visit Indiana University. We will be taken on a tour by current IU students. We will get a tour of the campus and students will see college through a student's eyes. That afternoon, we will be visiting the WonderLab hands-on science museum. Our students loved this trip last year. For many, it was the highlight of their year and a trip they'll never forget. More details on this trip will be coming home in the next couple of weeks.
