Learning Beyond the Classroom

In order to provide an experience-rich learning environment, students will be given the opportunity to attend a monthly field trip. Permission slips must be signed in order to attend. For the 2023-2024 school year we have tentatively scheduled the following field trips:


Johnny Tremain

by Esther Forbes

My Brother Sam is Dead

by Christopher Collier and James Lincoln Collier

Stealing Freedom

by Elisa Carbone

War Horse

by Michael Morpurgo

Boy in the Striped Pajamas

by John Boyne

Hannah's Suitcase

by Karen Levine

The Last Brother

by Trinka Hakes Noble

Empowering Historical Perspectives

We believe that when students connect with characters through novels, they can empathize with the people affected by major historical events. We will read books that follow what we are learning in history.
