Travel Learning Experiences


Ratner 5th and 6th Grade students visit historic sites in, and on the way to, Pittsburgh, and participate in survival skill/team building experiences in places like Heifer Global Village in Michigan.


The group traveled to Michigan in April 2018. Trip photos can be viewed on our Facebook page.


This year's 5th and 6th graders will travel to Pittsburgh on May 15, 16 and 17. Required forms and a packing list can be found in the packet below. Forms should be completed and returned to school by April 30, 2019.


Students in Grades 7 and 8 typically alternate their travel each year between Philadelphia/Washington, D.C and a travel experience that focuses on science and conservation. In April 2019, the students will travel to Tampa, Florida with WorldStrides, an educational travel experience provider with an exceptional reputation. We are excited to provide a new and in-depth science and conservation experience for our 7th and 8th graders this year. 


REQUIRED FORMS PACKET: Parents, please complete and return the form packet (see link below) by January 31, 2019.
