Field Trips: We will be planning 2 or 3 field trips this summer. As we confirm differing weeks, we will let you know. Though we try to plan field trips that will not incur additional costs, please be advised that there may be one or two that may include an additional cost and may need chaperones to attend as well.
Field Trip Schedule
This summer I am very excited about the summer field trip offerings for the students. Not only will we spend a second year visiting the fantastic Museum of the Bible in Washington DC, but the students in Level 3 (based on teacher’s discretion) and Level 4 classes will have the opportunity to take a master class with Elbert Watson and his adult dancers and dance company in Norfolk, VA. Parents are welcome to attend any of our field trips. Please let me know of your interest!
