Dear Parents and Guardians,

I am excited to announce that this year’s sixth grade class field trip will be at Nature’s Classroom in Silver Bay, NY. This trip provides students with an authentic learning experience where they are able to solidify their own understanding and appreciation of the world in which we live. The teachers from Nature’s Classroom will lead groups of 12 students who will participate in various hands-on activities in the areas of science, math, humanities, and social studies.

The Silver Bay location provides a wonderful place for students to hike, enjoy activities by the beautiful bay and experience a wide variety of wildlife. Due to Nature’s Classroom’s staffing and facility constraints, the sixth grade class will be divided by their team assignment and attend the trip on different days. Students will be chaperoned by their teachers and additional Goff staff.

The details are as follows:

Where: Nature’s Classroom in Silver Bay, NY
When: Team 6-1 on Wednesday, May 9 and Team 6-2 on Thursday, May 10
