Ann Arbor Open Field Trip and Yearbook

Field Trips

From kindergarteners going to the Ann Arbor Farmers Market to 7th and 8th graders touring Chicago, field trips and enrichment programs are an integral part of Ann Arbor Open’s curriculum at every grade level. Kids, teachers, and parents all look forward to these memorable experiences that distinguish our students’ Open education.

Each year, the Ann Arbor Open Coordinating Council (AAOCC) — our school’s parent-teacher-student organization — helps fund these programs.  To this end, we ask each family to make a contribution in accordance with the requested amounts listed in the table. We ask that each family contribute what they can afford. If your family is able to give more than the requested amount, please consider doing so, as it will benefit other Ann Arbor Open families.

Because Ann Arbor Open seeks to promote a fair and inclusive environment, every child will have the opportunity to participate in every outing their class takes regardless of their family’s contribution.


The field trip contribution includes the cost of yearbooks. Traditionally, the cost per yearbook is about $7 each.  Please consider donating extra if you are able to do so. All children will receive one yearbook at the end of the year regardless of their family’s contribution. 

If you have questions, please contact Michela Arnaboldi, Contributions Coordinator at [email protected] 

Please make your contribution as soon as possible to help us plan our spending throughout the school year. For tax purposes, all contributions received prior to December 21st will be deposited prior to the end of the calendar year.

If you would like to spread your contribution out, you can enter a smaller amount and choose to have it repeat every month.  You will need to manually stop the automatic withdraw from your account, we can not set a limit on how many times it repeats.
