While every grade, Preschool-Grade 8, enjoys field trips, students who have completed 7th and 8th grades may elect to join an extended class trip each summer. These are described here.
After 7th and 8th grades, students may elect to enjoy an extended school trip with their peers, teachers, and parents. The destinations alternate every other year between Washington D.C. and the Florida Keys. The Washington D.C. trip focuses on American government and history, while the Florida trip gives the students time to explore marine biology. Fundraising is done by the students in the year preceding each trip.
The 8th grade camping trip is a highly anticipated class adventure. The 8th graders spend much of the school year planning the details of this annual trip. After the 8th graders graduate on the last Tuesday in May, they, their class advisor, and many parent chaperones enjoy tent camping and a water park in central Wisconsin. This beloved tradition generates much excitement and lasting memories for these students in their final days as RCLS students.
