Fall/Winter Field Trips by Grade Level


While our "school-wide" field trip to the Discovery Museum was lots of fun, we are equally excited for our Grade Level Field Trips coming up!

Please note: We will not be able to include other children, siblings, etc. in our grade level field trips due to liability. Only WLA-enrolled students in that grade will be allowed to join the field trip.
