Field Trips


MVCS believes that field trips bring learning to life. Real-world experiences open students' minds, eyes, and hearts in ways that a textbook cannot. The list below provides just one example of a favorite field trip for each grade. All grades have multiple field trips planned to provide learning enrichment correlated with specific areas of study within the classroom. Field trips are subject to change as new opportunities become available.
