1.00 is amazing! Our typical fee for a fieldtrip (like to the Discovery Science Museum) is about 60.00. These trips happen throughout the year, and the letter is sent home with how much we owe about a week after each trip. I think my kids had about 7 field trips last year.
In 4th grade there is one overnight field trip, and the total is about 200.00. In 5th grade it is a 4 night trip to Santa Cruz science camp, and the total was about 500.00.
This is a public school in the bay area.
I grew up in California, and I don't remember my parents paying so much--so things have definitely changed. I remember I was in 7th grade when prop 13 passed, and that is when everything started getting cut from our schools.
