CMS 7th Grade to the Perot Museum

Scheduled for 1/25/16

Trip Info

On 1/25, CMS 7th graders will take our 3rd annual trip to the incredible Perot Museum of Nature and Science in downtown Dallas. We'll leave CMS as close to 8am as possible and return before the end of the day. It's an incredible opportunity, one that I hope your student will be able to participate in.


Here are the details: (tentative, of course)

  • Depart before 8am
  • Arrive at Perot by 9:30am
  • 10am - Split into groups to see general exhibit..
  • 11am - Split into groups to see traveling exhibit
  • 12:00 - See one of the great educational movies the museum offers.
  • 12:45 - Eat sack lunch that each student brings with them (they may bring money to eat at the Perot Restaurant.
  • 1:30 - On the road back to CMS
  • 3pm - Arrive and go home as usual.

Payment Info

The student cost for this trip is $15. CMS will cover transportation costs and the remainder of the cost for the exhibits. Please understand that if you were to take your student to the museum on any other day, it would cost at least $30 to see the general exhibit, the Creatures of Light exhibit and to see the 3D movie, Sea Creatures. I realize that $15 a lot, so please do not allow that to be a factor. If you are unable to come up with the full amount, please pay what you can and I'll cover the rest. Again, PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW COST TO BE A FACTOR IN THIS TRIP. It's truly an amazing experience for our kiddos. I have a limited amount of financial aid available, so please let me know ASAP if the $15 is problematic.

Please make payment to Ms. Condor in the front office at CMS.

Lunch Info

Your student may eat at the Perot Museum Cafe. However, prices are a little high and eating there will take more time from enjoying the exhibits. If you'd like a menu, let me know and I can get you one. I suggest that your student bring a lunch with them. We can lock them on the bus until it's time to eat and then everyone can gather at one time and eat in the Perot courtyard.

If you would like the CMS cafe to make a lunch for your son or daughter, let us know. We can do that as well.
