6th Grade Science Camp on Catalina Island
For all 6th Grade Students at Thurston Middle School
September 17th - September 20th, 2019
Thurston Middle School students will have the opportunity to learn science in an outdoor environment on Catalina Island with experienced TMS staff and Ms. Brackez, including science teacher, Mr. Selin. This year our location will be at White's Landing which boasts the widest sandy beach on the entire island. Each student will get a hands-on educational experience as they snorkel and kayak the beautiful waters, explore the renowned Pennington Marine Science Center, the Plankton Lab, and fish aquariums. The cost of the camp is $525.00 per student.
While state law does not allow school districts to charge fees to students for educational activities, this program relies on financial contributions from participating families. Please know that the payment of the fee is not required to participate, and families that choose to contribute may do so at any amount. However, a suggested donation of $525.00 per student will help sustain our program at its current level. Conversely, INSUFFICIENT ENROLLMENT AND/OR INSUFFICIENT FUNDING COULD RESULT IN CANCELLATION OF THIS PROGRAM.
To ensure 6th Grade Science Camp does not get cancelled due to insufficient funds, I would like to donate additional funds.
