Field trips are exciting educational experiences students and staff look forward to every year. The trips encourage our students to connect their learning in school to real world experiences. These trips are rich with opportunities for students to create long lasting memories.


There are two over night field trips planned with our students this year. The 3rd grade will tour the Mackinac area and attractions in the Upper Peninsula. Some highlights include: Mackinac Island, Mill Creek, Colonial Michilimackinac, and Hartwick Pines State Park. The trip this year is May 24th & 25th.


The 6th grade students and teachers are preparing for their annual Camp Kimball trip on May 2nd-May 4th. Camp Kimball is a beautiful facility in Reading, Michigan that focuses on outdoor educational experiences in the areas of Michigan history, hands-on science and team building. The 6th grade students had their first camp meeting on Friday. We will hold a parent meeting on April 10th at 6:00 PM in the CUES Library. Staff members from Camp Kimball will be available to provide you with information about what your child will experience.
