We are in the process of finalizing our end of the school year class trips. In all of the trips we will incorporate some educational connections to the trip. The educational connections may happen in coursework before the trip, during the trip itself, or both. We also make sure that we have at least one adult on each trip for every 15 students attending. The cost of the trips is paid for by the Clear Creek Amana Middle School Student Council. Students have a choice to request a school sack lunch, to bring their own lunch, or to purchase lunch (with their own money) at the baseball game or at Adventureland.
Below I have described each of the trips and provided some additional information. If you have questions, please contact me.
