Elementary Field Trips

A field trip is one of the best tools that we can use to provide every student with real-world experiences. Whether that’s a trip to the local library, park, a museum, a zoo, each experience that a student participates in contributes to their understanding of the world.

When students leave the classroom, they see the connections between what is happening at school and in the “real world.” They begin to see that what they learn within the walls of our classrooms can help them solve the problems they see in the world around them and can have a direct impact on who they become as people.

At CTA we take pride in ensuring our students experience opportunities outside of our classroom. We are fortunate to have a strong partnership with our CTA Parent Association who each year fundraises and sets aside funds to support our student field trips.

Seussical The Musical

Our kindergarten through 5th grade students attended Seussical the Musical at the Grand Rapids Civic theatre. This field trip was made  possible due to our successful walk-a-thon and partnership with our Parent Association.
