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.
Nebraska's Largest Classroom
The Nebraska State Fair provides many fun and varied activities for students to learn about our great state. Each year, special days are set aside for schools to experience all that the fair has to offer. Special learning opportunities are available, as well, and we take full advantage of the opportunity! Each year, Zion students in grades K-8 take a day-long trip to the state fair to experience Nebraska’s Largest Classroom days. It is a fun and educational experience for all!
Camp Luther offers many wonderful opportunities for our students to enjoy the outdoors and learn about Jesus! Your 3rd-5th grade students will spend 3 days experiencing all that Camp Luther has to offer. From nature hikes and organized games to campfires and devotions, there will never be 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. Its desert dome alone holds 5 world records! Each year, students in grades 6 take advantage of the zoo’s Sleeping Bag Safari program and spend a night camping out in the zoo. Your students will receive two behind-the-scenes tours of the zoo, see the animals in a whole new way at night, and spend the night “sleeping with the fishes.” (or the orangutans or the desert creatures) Once the zoo opens, we spend the day exploring and experiencing all the incredible and educational attractions at the second largest zoo in America!
