Exterior of Fossil Discovery Center

Join us on January 12. 2018 at 9:30 AM for a field trip to the Fossil Discovery Center.

We will be taking a guided tour of the museum and grounds and get to participate in a mock dig.

* Students will learn about the wildlife that roamed our valley during the Ice Age; how the environment has changed over time; and how fossils were discovered, removed from the ground, and preserved.

* All of the fossils on display come from across the road at the landfill, so they are local.

Space is limited so register early to secure your spot! Registration closes when sold out or at 10:00 PM on January 5, 2018.

Please note: PayPal invoices will be sent to families who mistakenly registered using Charter School Instructional Funds if it is found that the student/child is not currently enrolled, does not have sufficient funds or if they have signed up more adult/chaperones than allowed by their enrolled charter school.

How do I specify how I am paying for our spaces?

Please read all the info about this field trip, take the time now to add this event or field trip to your family calendar, please follow all the prompts when registering and be sure to enter all requested information.

1) Before you proceed to register for this event or field trip, please decide how many tickets you will be reserving using Charter School Instructional Funds and/or the number of spaces you need to pay for out of pocket.

2) You will click the green "Tickets" button in the upper right of the event posting. This will open the ticket selection window.

3) You will then use the arrow button on the right side of each ticket option to select how you will be paying for each ticket you need. Please select the number of tickets you need to pay for out of pocket (Full Price) and/or the ones you need to pay for using Charter School Student Instructional Funding (Free).

If you are requesting to use Charter School Student Instructional Funding, please note that this does not indicate the order is free. Your Student's Instructional Funding account will be reviewed for available balance and funds will be withdrawn based on your order request about one week prior to the trip date.

4) If you are electing to pay for chaperone tickets to this event or field trip using your Student's Instructional Funds please know that they can only be used to pay for up to two (2) adult chaperone tickets max, per charter school family. This policy varies from school to school, please verify with your school what their policy is.

Inspire Charter School student/chaperone ticket limits:

1 enrolled student in your family attending the trip = 1 total chaperone ticket paid by funds.

2+ enrolled students in your family attending the trip = 2 total chaperone tickets paid by funds.

5) Any other adults and non-charter enrolled children planning to attend with you must pay out of pocket for their space. As referenced above PayPal invoices will be sent to families who mistakenly registered using Charter School Instructional Funds if it is found that the student/child is not currently enrolled, does not have sufficient funds or if they have signed up more adult/chaperones than allowed by their enrolled charter school. If the PayPal invoices are not paid within 24 hours the family's reservation will be canceled and their spots will be given to the next family on the waitlist.

6) You will continue through the registration process and will notice that the total amount due should only reflect any out-of-pocket payments you need to make. All of the charter students and allowable charter chaperones you are reserving tickets for will be deducted from your total. This process will allow you to pay for any self-pay out of pocket tickets, in one transaction using your credit card through Eventbrite.

7) You will have 30 minutes to complete this transaction, after which time if you have not completed the transaction, your tickets will be returned to the queue.

8) If you have successfully completed the registration process you will receive an automatic order confirmation in your email inbox. You can also log into your Eventbrite account at any time to check what events you have signed up for.
