Upcoming Field Trips

Oregon Symphony - We have a great trip to the Schnitz on Tuesday, March 1st to hear wonderful music. We will be taking a bus downtown from 10:00-12:30pm, so please let me know if you won't be able to make it. The students should wear walkable and comfortable shoes.

Rice NW Museum of Rocks and Minerals - On Tuesday, March 8th, we will see amazing geological wonders at the Rice NW Museum of Rocks and Minerals! A bus will take us to Hillsboro from 9:00-1:30pm, so please let me know if you won't be able to make the trip. We will be indoors for most of the time. Bring a sack lunch to be eaten there. If you would like to bring a little spending money to purchase something from the gift shop, that is optional. Last year each student was allowed to choose one rock from a pile outdoors to take home as a souvenir. Please let me know if you have any questions!
