Sign up to chaperone your child’s field trips!
Parents, Thank you for being willing to chaperone our students on their field trips this year! We are thankful for your help and involvement in your student’s education. As you sign up, please keep a few things in mind:
Field trips are designed to be educational. Only approved adult chaperones and students whose class is participating in the trip should attend.
You will need a car that can transport at least 3 school-aged children in order to be considered as a chaperone.
You must sign up to chaperone at least 2 weeks before the trip date. Any chaperone requests for trips less than 2 weeks before the date will be denied.
If you attend a field trip, you will be expected to help supervise all students present and to keep students focused on the group’s activities. Field trips are not personal family time; they are educational school outings that teachers have spent much time and effort to prepare. Please adhere to the teacher’s directions and expectations.
The Hastings Museum is the largest municipal museum between Chicago and Denver. It features a Theatre with a 65-foot wide screen, a full domed Planetarium, and dozens of animal species set in their natural habitats. The Hastings Museum offers many special learning programs and events that are designed to bring natural history, science, and cultural history up close for students.
Camp Luther offers many wonderful opportunities for our students to enjoy the outdoors and learn about Jesus! Every other school year, Our 5th-6th grade students, teachers, and parent chaperones travel to Schuyler, NE to spend a few days experiencing all that Camp Luther has to offer. From nature hikes and organized games to campfires and devotions, there is never a dull moment!
Stuhr Museum of the Prairie Pioneer
A short 30-minute drive from Hastings is the fantastic, interactive Stuhr Museum. Stuhr offers many classes for students grades K-6, and we make sure that our students don’t miss the opportunity to learn in an experience-based environment. Each year, our classes schedule a trip to Stuhr to take part in one of their many fun classes.
Sleeping Bag Safari
Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo is one of the largest and most revolutionary zoos in the country. Every other year, students in grades 5 & 6 take advantage of the zoo’s Sleeping Bag Safari program and spend a night camping out in the zoo with their teachers and parent chaperones. Students receive behind-the-scenes tours of the zoo, observe the animals in a whole new way at nighttime, and spend the night sleeping amongst various animals. Once the zoo opens, students spend the day exploring and experiencing all the incredible and educational attractions at the second largest zoo in America!
