7th Grade Field Trips

We are very excited to announce our annual seventh grade trips this year will be to the Liberty Science Center in Liberty State Park, Jersey City, NJ and to the Goodwin Holocaust Museum at the Cherry Hill Katz JCC to see a production of “Dear Esther”.

*We are aware that unfortunately the trip to the JCC conflicts with a scheduled trip for our Peer Leaders. This was unavoidable as both trip programs were only available on May 31.

The cost of the Liberty Science Center trip includes transportation, admission to the Science Center, and a presentation in the Planetarium aligned with our 7th grade science curriculum. Transportation will be by deluxe motor coach with air conditioning and restroom.

The cost of the “Dear Esther” trip covers the cost of admission for the production. Students will be transported to the Goodwin Holocaust Museum by regular school bus.

In addition, students must comply with all science center rules which are enforced by the Liberty Science Center and New Jersey State Police.

Students will return to Carusi at approximately 5:00 PM. Students will need their own transportation that day to and from school that day. Every student is expected to ride the bus to and from the Liberty Science Center. Students should not plan to use the school phone to call for a ride.
