On Thursday, May 6th, students from Central Elementary traveled to Tucson, Arizona for their annual 6th Grade Field Trip. The trip was earned by the students for showing all elements of C.A.R.E.- Compassion, Attitude, Respect and Effort. This year, nine of the top 5th Graders were also invited to join the 6th Grade group.
The first half of the trip included a tour of the International Wildlife Museum. The International Wildlife Museum is dedicated to increasing knowledge and appreciation of the diverse wildlife of the world. It highlights over 400 species of insects, mammals and birds from around the globe. Dioramas depict wild animals in their natural settings. Working in small groups, students completed a scavenger hunt as they toured the museum. Our students received high compliments from the museum staff for their cooperativeness and good manners.
After lunch at the museum, the students were treated to a fun time at the Golf N Stuff Amusement Park. The Park features Bumper Boats, Race Cars, Laser Tag, Batting Cages, Miniature Golf, and an Arcade.
Mr. Gordon, and Mr. Acosta would like to thank those students who attended, for their excellent behavior throughout the day.
