International Trips 
In order to support the mission of STEM to create relevant, real-world educational experiences we are offering students the opportunity to participate in multi-day immersion field trips throughout the 2016-17 school year. Please see a brief description of each of the trips below.   Costs are approximate.

Sign up was completed prior to Fall Break. Detailed KSS forms, DCSD field trip permission & medical forms will need to be completed as they are emailed and parents are notified.

SeaCamp is a marine science camp in San Diego, CA that 7th Grade STEM students have the opportunity to attend this year! Students experience a week of hands-on, interactive learning covering a wide scope of marine information.

We will have detailed parent information available during back to school night Wednesday, August 17, 2016 for a brief explanation of the trip, requirements to attend, and questions. This will be in the 7th grade science classrooms.

To help your family planning, the two weeks are November 14-18, 2016 and April 24-28, 2017. Though we have two separate weeks secured, spots still are limited with the total number of 7th grade students this year. In order to remedy this while maintaining fairness, we will have a lottery.

In order to be eligible for the lottery, ONLY the paper forms (DCSD Overnight Form and SEA CAMP forms) and the online Google form MUST be received by Thursday, August 25th at 4pm. (See form links to the left side) Paper forms needs to be turned into the Middle School office in a sealed envelope addressed to Kathy Dwyer.

Sign Up fo the Trip has expired - Email Ms. Dwyer for info

If selected in the lottery, you will receive a notification email. You will have 48 hours to sign up and pay your $400 deposit using the RevTrack link within the email. After the 48 hours has lapsed, students on the waitlist will be contacted and put on the attendee list.

The remaining full payment will need to be received by September 26, 2016. The total will be an amount anywhere between $1,100-1,200 and also paid through RevTrack. Unfortunately, an exact total cannot be given without the deposits paid which is necessary to secure the flights.
