Field Trips

Summer is the time for field trips. Please read any descriptions to see if there are special items your child needs. We will also list a price for some of the field trips. This price will be added to your bill so that you do not need to bring cash on that day. There are a few Youth Center and Beehive field trips in which your child is allowed to bring cash for concessions. These will be specified in the description.

Fall Registration Forms

Please watch for the Fall Registration Form coming out after July 4th. It will be due back July 15th for the 2019-2020 school year. If your child will not be attending in the fall, please make sure to fill in the final day so we know when you'll be done.
