    We are excited about our upcoming ninth grade class field trip to ECU on this coming Monday, August 12th. Freshmen will be touring the campus, getting an in-depth view of the engineering program, and we will be working on team building skills at the Ropes Course. The cost of $35 must be paid by Wednesday, August 7th if it has not been paid yet.


    Freshman classes from both Early College EAST in Havelock, and Craven Early College in New Bern will be participating together on this trip.  This offers a fantastic opportunity for team building and collaboration between the two schools, which will continue throughout the year with the World Dynamics course and with other joint field trips.


    Students will have the opportunity to either leave from and return to Craven Early College in New Bern, or Early College EAST in Havelock.  Please discuss your preferences with your student tonight so that they can indicate their choice at school tomorrow. Once a choice is made, we will not be able to accommodate last minute changes on the day of the trip.


    Please see the schedule below for details of the trips events. 


    Students departing from Havelock should arrive to ECE by 6:15 am.  Students Departing from New Bern should arrive to CEC (the Bender Building of CCC Campus) by 7:00 am.


    All students should wear comfortable closed toed shoes and school appropriate attire that they can be active in.  Additionally, all students should bring a bag lunch and a water bottle, along with any snacks they might want during the day.  Thank you for providing us this chance to share this experience with your student.
