Field Trips

Dear 8th grade families,

We are starting the school year with a field trip to the Sambica Camp for an 8th grade team building experience on the high ropes challenge course.

Our trip is scheduled for Friday, September 29.  We will need parent drivers / chaperones.  We will be leaving SMS at 9 am and returning about 2:30 pm.  Please let me know if you are willing to drive and how many students you can take.  All drivers must have driver forms on file with the school office and current Safe Environment training and background check.  You can check with Ginny Morrissey ( to check your status.

Each student needs to bring a sack lunch and water and wear clothing appropriate for the weather and the activities and that also meets the requirements for a free dress day as outlined in the student handbook.

Each student must have a signed permission slip and a waiver form.  These are attached to this email. Please return these by Friday, September 15.

For 8th graders, the fee is included in the special 8th grade graduation activity fee.  This fee is explained in a separate letter and was included in the online tuition and fees.

Mrs. Ensminger
