Field trips are an important part of the RCS learning process. They are an integral part of our overall school program, enriching our science, history and nature studies. Field trips vary each year and may be different for each class, depending on the curriculum focus of the class and the interests of the students. Some of our favorite field trips include: caroling at Eskaton Village, visiting our local creeks, the Salmon Hatchery, Folsom Zoo, B Street Theater, Effie Yeaw, Maidu Indian Museum, The Mondavi Center, Ropes Course, Gold Country, and Washington, D.C.
A highlight for our students, is our stay at Sutter's Fort. After an extensive pioneer and California history unit study, students have a unique opportunity to experience 24 hours living as a pioneer in 1840’s California.
After arriving on a horse pulled wagon, students spend the day rotating through stations and activities, eat dinner, enjoy music, and even take turns managing the night watch to "protect" the fort throughout the night.
Another favorite field trip is exploring the Marin Headlands through the Golden Gate Life Sciences and Ecology Program. Over several days and nights, the students are immersed in this remarkable coastal region, learning up close about the variety of ecosystems at play, how they connect, and the importance of conservation and understanding the human impact on our environment.
