We have three exciting field trips planned for our 8th grade students, including the big year-end trip to New York City! Along with the trip to NYC, 8th graders will also get to partake in trips to Manchester’s Palace Theatre for a performance of “A Christmas Carol” as part of their literature curriculum, and Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts as part of the history curriculum. More information on these trips including dates, times, and permission slips, can all be found below.
Palace Theatre – Friday, 12/14 – $25
As part of the literature curriculum, our 8th grade students will travel to Manchester, NH for a 10 AM performance of “A Christmas Carol”. A holiday classic, “A Christmas Carol” tells the tale of grouchy old Ebenezer Scrooge whom in the midst of the holiday season learns the value of giving and what it means to be kind to the less fortunate. This heartwarming story was voted Best Live Theatrical Production and Best Theatre Event of the Year in Manchester by Hippo Magazine.
The cost of this trip is $25 per student, and all forms, and fees will be due in to the main office, no later than December 7. Students will wear their regular school uniforms on this day.
Museum of Fine Arts – Tuesday, 1/15 – $10
Nashua Catholic 8th graders will be traveling down to Boston for a day at the Museum of Fine Arts. This trip, a part of their history curriculum, showcases exhibits such as The Art of Influence: Propaganda Postcards from the Era of the World Wars.
The cost of this trip is $10 per student, and all forms, and fees will be due in to the main office no later than January 7. Students will wear their regular school uniforms, not their gym uniform on this day. Students must also pack a bagged lunch with their name on it.
New York City – Tuesday, 6/4 – $250
Is there any better way to cap off a great school year than by heading to the Big Apple? This annual trip is a great way for our entire 8th grade class to come together, and share in some amazing memories, and great experiences outside of the classroom. Enjoy the many animals at the Central Park Zoo, attend Mass at the stunning Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, tour Radio City Music Hall, get a breathtaking view of the city from the 70th floor of the Rockefeller Center, and enjoy time together under the bright lights of Times Square!
This trip is meant to be an enjoyable enrichment opportunity for our students, but it is a trip with many moving pieces, so your best behavior is crucial! Nashua Catholic does reserve the right to refuse permission to any student if the field trip committee feels a student’s conduct would reflect unfavorably on the school.
The total cost of this trip is $250 per student. Payment must be broken up in to two separate payments. The first of which is a $100 non-refundable deposit, which must be turned in to the main office no later than December 7. This deposit is crucial to hold a space for each student in the many activities that we will partake in throughout the trip.
The second payment will cover the remaining balance of $150, and this payment must be turned in to the office no later than February 22. Students must also pack a bagged lunch with their name on it.
All checks can be made out to “Nashua Catholic”.
