Attention 7th Grade Families:

We are excited to introduce a new field trip this year for our 7th grade students. Beginning this year, 7th grade students will have an opportunity to go to Catalina Island Marine Institute from April 24-26, 2019 .

Catalina Island is a beautiful natural laboratory. Catalina Island Marine Institute (CIMI) is a unique outdoor science school, providing an exciting outdoor education experience for 4 through 12 th  grade students from public and private schools. The program is offered at three locations on Catalina Island – operated by the nonprofit corporation, Guided Discoveries – including Toyon Bay, Fox Landing, and Cherry Cove. We will be staying at Fox Landing. During this three day programs, students and teachers enjoy a variety of hands-on labs and field activities in Marine Science and Island Ecology. CIMI is a STEM based program.

Inspirada staff and administration will be chaperoning this field trip.

In order to determine a final cost for students, we need to get a head count of how many students are interested in attending. The overall cost will be approximately $350-400; however, we will know a more exact cost once we determine how many students will be joining us.

Please click "RSVP" link below to let us know whether or not you would like your child to participate in this trip. PLEASE REPLY BY THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 06, 2018 in order to help us proceed with planning. I have also attached a link to CIMI's website.

Thank you! As always, please do not hesitate to reach out should you have questions.
