The Garfield Heights City Schools are excited to provide our students in grades PK-8th with Essential Experiences for the remainder of the 2022-2023 school year. Essential Experiences will provide all students with a common meaningful experience outside of the classroom.
Prior to receiving this funding, field trips in the district were mostly teacher-driven. A student's ability to attend outside learning opportunities may have been limited by barriers including funding, where a student lived, or where they attended school. Field trips were not guaranteed for every child and every classroom across the district. The Essential Experiences now ensure that every child in every PK to 8th grade, district-wide, gets to have the same valuable real-world experience that strengthens their connection to their learning and their community.
The following field trips have been scheduled for the remainder of the 2022-2023 school year.
- PK to 5th Grade: Cleveland Metroparks Zoo
- 6th to 8th Grade: Great Lakes Science Center
- 7th and 8th Grade: Realm of the Reptile
- PK to 5th Grade: Basketball Jones
Any child who is in attendance for the field trips or activities scheduled will be participating. If you do not want your child to attend the Essential Experience scheduled for their grade, please remember to fill out the form at the bottom of the letter that was sent home with your student and return it to your child's teacher.
