6th Grade Mount Misery Trip

  • Annually our 6th grade students and their teachers look forward to the Mount Misery Environmental Residency Program. Each day is filled with instruction in ecology and environmental studies with opportunities for investigations, experimentation, and discovery,

    Each house will spend four (4) days and three (3) nights at the campsite, leaving from and returning to Carusi.

    While this program is part of our curriculum, parents are requested to contribute to the cost of the program. The parents' cost for the program this year is $263. The program fee includes all meals, housing, and transportation to/from school. A separate $10 is requested for a commemorative t-shirt.

    Please review all of the information posted below, complete the required electronic form, and submit appropriate payments along with any supplemental paperwork to your child's homeroom teacher promptly so as not to delay your child's trip departure.

    On Tuesday morning of your child’s week at Mt Misery, please do not bring your child to school before 8:45 AM. As you approach the school, turn left and proceed to the rear of the building. Please follow all signs and the directions from our staff as you approach the drop off area. Once you reach the drop off area, bring your child’s luggage directly to the waiting truck. Your child should proceed to the cafeteria with their lunch for that day in their possession. Their teachers will be waiting for the students in the cafeteria.

    On Friday morning the buses should arrive back at Carusi at 11 AM. Please follow the direction of Staff members to the designated staging area. A one-way traffic pattern will be in place to ensure safety. It is extremely important that you’re here to pick up your tired, but happy, youngster ON TIME.

    Finally, unlike at school, messages are not to be sent to the students nor received by them due to the setting and nature of the trip. If there is an emergency and you need to pick up your child, please contact us at Carusi and we will assist you.
