Field Trips


Field trips are part of Elm Middle School's curriculum, and all students are required to attend.

At the start of each school year the Elm administration provides parents with a list of planned trips, along with the total cost for each student.

Parents are expected to pay the cost for each of their children. The school offers a payment plan to assist with costs.

In recent years, field trips have included a visit to Chicago’s Navy Pier to watch an IMAX film, curriculum-based tours of Chicago landmarks, a trip to the Museum of Science and Industry, an outing to Drury Lane Theatre to watch a performance of “A Christmas Carol” and a visit to the Illinois Holocaust Museum.
