NMS Grade 7 Field Trip Information

All students in grade 7 will have the opportunity this fall to attend a field trip to participate in team building activities.  The field trip will take place on either Thursday, October 2 or Tuesday, October 7, with half of the 7th graders attending on each day.

Students will be going to the Fort Snelling Base Camp in St. Paul, MN.  Students will rotate through a series of team building activities such as rock climbing, problem solving exercises, etc. For this trip, students will leave the school at approximately 8:10am and return at approximately 2:45pm on Thursday, October 2 or Tuesday, October 7.  Students who have Mrs. Meehan for science will go to Base Camp on Thursday, 10/2 (as well as all St. Dominic students) and students who have Mrs. Allin will to to Base Camp on Tuesday, 10/7.

When students are not at Base Camp, they will rotate through regularly scheduled classes with the exception of science class.  Instead of regular class, students will go to the Carleton Arboretum to complete a buckthorn population study and remove buckthorn from an area. Students will be in the arboretum for the regularly schedule science class and one additional class period.  Students should check with the teacher of the missed class for homework.

Students were given a packet in science class.  Please complete the 3 forms: the field trip permission form, Base Camp participant waiver, and the Carleton Arboretum waiver.  Students should return the completed forms and payment to their science teacher. 

Forms and payment are due by Monday, September 15.

Cost:  $30

Partial scholarships are available for those that qualify for free and reduced lunch.  Students who request scholarship assistance should make the request on the permission form and submit the partial payment with their forms by the deadline.  If the student is not on free or reduced lunch, your family will be asked to pay the remaining balance.
