Field trips are a special part of school, and we are excited for students to enjoy these learning experiences again. Field trips allow students to experience new environments, learn in unique places, apply skills learned in the classroom, and connect with the real world around us. Our teachers have planned 4 to 5 field trips for each grade level. Field trips will occur from late September 2022 through May 2023. You can read about our plan for the year here.
Unfortunately, field trip prices have increased like gas and other expenses. We know paying for field trips can be a burden for families, especially if not known ahead of time. We have calculated the cost of field trips this year to be $60 for each student. This $60 payment includes all transportation costs and admission costs. Field trips can be paid 3 ways.
You can pay these payments in cash or check to Wilkesboro Elementary sent in to your child's teacher or to the school office.
You can also pay these through an online portal via our website. Please be sure to specify whom the payment is for. Provide as much information as possible.
We also welcome any donations for students who can't pay for field trips. You can make a donation by sending cash to the school office or through the online portal under the HOME button by selecting SCHOOL FEES.

Note: If you have already paid cash at school for a field trip, those payments will not be reflected in the K-12 Payment Center as all students default to $60.
However, if you intend to pay some payments online and some in cash, please contact Vanessa Simmons in our school office at 336-838-4261 and she can adjust your balance through the K-12 Payment Center.
