7th Grade Memphis Trip Homepage

Trip Dates are:

October 18-19, 2018

Trip Rationale

Believing that educational travel can enhance the effectiveness of our 7th-grade Science and Social Studies curriculum, for the last two years we have taken a trip to Memphis, Tennessee. Given the success of these trips, we are pleased to announce the dates and activities for our 2018 overnight trip. We anticipate that this year's trip will provide students with a unique, interactive learning experience, as well as opportunities for personal growth, maturity, and independence.   

Trip Description

This fall (October 18-19) we will be taking the 7th Grade on an overnight academic field trip to Memphis, Tennessee. While on this trip we will engage in a riverwalk where students will examine an exact scale model of the Lower Mississippi River, and visit historical museums and sites like the Civil Rights Museum and the Rock-N-Soul Museum. This trip is a crucial component of this school year, and we would like all students to attend.
