Field Trips & Class Trips
To enrich curriculum at Christ the King, classes are taken off-campus to places of interest that relate to their class studies and to build classroom community. Some middle school class experiences have included the Civil Rights Museum, the Botanic Gardens, Lichterman Nature Center, Escape Rooms, Shelby Farms, and more.
In April, CTK Middle Schoolers have the opportunity to attend an overnight class trip. Past class trips have included Nashville, TN, and Washington, D.C. These class trips have aided in real-world learning of Tennessee State history and American history. More information on class trips will be provided to parents at the beginning of the academic school year.
For local class field trips will individual automobiles may be used to transport students on school-related activities at the owner’s risk. In such cases the following is understood and practiced:
- Christ the King expects that no more passengers will be carried in the vehicle than the number of available working seat belts.
- All passengers should have their own seat belt and booster seat (if necessary) and use it while the vehicle is being operated.
- The driver of the vehicle must have auto insurance for their vehicle. A copy of a valid driver’s license and proof of insurance must be on file in the CTK school office.
- Christ the King does not insure the non-school owned vehicles. In other words, should an accident occur, the driver’s insurance would be used to cover any loss.)
- Christ the King Lutheran School does have insurance to protect the school against lawsuits brought against it should an accident occur and the school is found negligent.
- Younger siblings are discouraged from attending field trip events.
- Drivers are strongly discouraged from stopping during field trip events for treats or drinks for the students.
