Learning Beyond the Walls

Freshman Class Field Trip, April 21, 2016

DARK UNIVERSE Opens November 2, 2013

Freshman Activities

On Thursday, April 21, 2016 we will take our learning beyond the walls of Unami for the Freshman Class field trip. This year we will be visiting the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) in New York City. The AMNH is one of the world’s preeminent scientific and cultural institutions with exhibits about human cultures, the natural world, and the universe. This trip will provide an opportunity for each student to participate in a rich learning experience while connecting to studies in the classroom.

The day of the trip we will depart from Unami at 7:30 a.m. Students will travel on Hagey Coach buses to the museum. Students will need to bring money to eat at the museum’s food court or a bag lunch. We will return to Unami at approximately 5:30 p.m., and students will need parent transportation home.

The Freshman House activity fund is $100.00 per student. This cost covers round trip transportation for the New York City field trip, exhibit fees to the planetarium show (“Dark Universe”), Freshman Day admission and round trip transportation on Freshman Day.

Please complete the registration, sign the electronic permission slip, and submit your payment on MyPaymentsPlus by Tuesday, March 1, 2016. Please see information on this new system for the middle schools.


All CB Middle Schools are now using My Payments Plus for parents/guardians to use to pay for field trips, PE uniforms, student activities and other fees.

This is our first time using www.mypaymentsplus.com - it seems to be working well in our high schools. The cost, $100 (which includes our field trip and June Freshman Day activities) and permission slip, is managed through this system. Parents/guardians will need to do the payment and fill out the permission slip online. This online format is a new process; please let us know if you run into any difficulty.
