The field trips are “brain breaks” for our scholars where they can learn something outside of the classroom during the hectic week of testing. All scholars are expected to participate. Any scholar who arrives late will have to stay in the lobby with Mrs. Cox. If they are to take the test, they will have to make up those test on Friday.
