During the month of December, students and faculty from the Minnesota cyber school have the opportunity to attend the following field trips:

•The Science Museum of Minnesota in St. Paul, Minnesota on Wednesday, December 3, 2008

Over 100 MTS Minnesota Connections Academy students and Learning Coaches will tour the CSI Exhibit. The exhibit explores the scientific world of a crime scene investigator.

•Feed My Starving Children in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Monday, December 8, 2008

Students will have the chance to help pack food to be sent to starving children around the globe. During the two-hour session, MTS Minnesota Connections Academy students can expect to pack thousands of meals and make a significant different for the world’s hungriest children. Guatemala, Nicaragua, Sri Lanka and India are simply a few of the countries that the packaged food will be sent.

•Ice Skating at the Oval in Roseville, Minnesota on Wednesday, December 10, 2008

Participants will ice skate at the Minnesota Oval, the world’s largest outdoor refrigerated skating rink.

•Minnesota Transitions Charter School Basketball Game in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Saturday, December 13, 2008

Minnesota Connections Academy, with its headquarters in Minneapolis, Minn., combines state-certified teachers, high quality curriculum, unique technology tools, an extensive selection of electives, clubs and community experiences to create an individualized alternative to the brick-and-mortar classroom. The curriculum is aligned to meet or exceed Minnesota academic standards. Students also participate in state standardized testing.

Connections Academy is designed to meet the needs of students and their families who are looking for a unique public school option—those who need a flexible schedule, learn at a different pace from their peers, need more individualized attention or live in isolated rural settings. Homebound and previously home-schooled students can also thrive in the program. Connections Academy operates its full-time Internet school program in Minnesota through a partnership with Minnesota Transitions Charter School.

Families interested in free online school with some similarities to home schooling, but with the support of state-certified teachers and the accountability of public education are encouraged to learn more by calling 800-382-6010 or visiting www.ConnectionsAcademy.com.
