I wanted to let you know that Mrs. Schmidt and I have planned a joint field trip. On Tuesday, April 4th, the 3rd and 4th grades will be spending the day at Longwood Gardens. The children will have free time to explore the grounds as well as taking part in a directed program to learn about using Science in the garden during the process of pollution.
In order to give us enough time for everything, we will be leaving school at 8:00 am by bus. Students will need to arrive at school by 7:45 am that day. They can wear gym uniforms and should pack a disposable lunch. We will return to school in time for dismissal.
Because of the Home and School subsidy of $20 per student, the cost for this trip is only $5.00 per student which will be billed through Option C. I will need 2 parent chaperones to come along with us. If you would like to volunteer, please send me a message by Monday, February, 13th. If I get too many volunteers, I will draw 2 names out of a hat. The cost for each chaperone is $25.00 which will also go through Option C. I will be sending home a permission slip shortly.
