Respond with more details about your group to help us ensure the trip is accessible to all and supports your learning goals.
Make lunch plans: You are welcome to eat in our park after your trip. Shaded picnic tables and a grassy area for playing are available. Feel free to bring balls and games.
Arrange transportation: Teachers reserve their own bus and apply for reimbursement from the Waterwise Community Center after the trip.
Sign up chaperones: Chaperones and teacher assistance is critical to a successful trip. Up to six chaperones may attend and at least two chaperones per class are REQUIRED.
Watch the weather: Trips can be rescheduled if the forecast 24 hours prior to your trip predicts a 40% or higher chance of rain. However, we love to teach in the rain and encourage you to keep your field trip on a rainy day to see the water cycle in action.
