6TH GRADE SCIENCE CAMP ON CATALINA ISLAND
October 2nd – October 5th, 2018
Thurston Middle School students will have the opportunity to visit the Mountain and Science Academy (MSA) on Catalina Island this fall and have an incredible hands-on science experience. MSA is located at Emerald Bay Cove, one of the top 10 snorkeling spots in the world. Each student will get a hands-on educational experience as they snorkel the beautiful waters, and explore the renowned Pennington Marine Science Center, the Plankton Lab, fish aquariums, and the Shark touch tank.
While state law does not allow school districts to charge fees to students for educational activities, this program relies on financial contributions from participating families. Please know that the payment of the fee is not required to participate, and families that choose to contribute may do so at any amount. However, a suggested donation of $400 per student will help sustain our program at its current level. Conversely, insufficient enrollment and/or insufficient funding could result in cancellation of this program.
