Dear 5th Grade Families,
I hope that you had a great, long Memorial Day weekend.
The schedule for exams was sent out in the Weekly Update, and they are also on the long term calendar.
As we approach the end of the year, I will in include a schedule of June's events in next week's email. Below, please find the details for the June 8th field trip.
Thursday evening is the final Home and School Association meeting for the year at 7:00 PM in the Cafeteria.
Have a great week!
June 8th Field Trip Information:
For the June 8th trip, we will depart the Yardley Train station on the 8:53 AM (#3421) train. If you are not chaperoning, I will be at the station by 7:45 AM, and you may drop your child off at the shelter on the Reading Avenue side. If you are chaperoning, parking is 1.00 (quarters only); I recommend parking on the opposite side of the station by the VFW/Yardley Kids Academy. Please be at the station by 8:25 AM.
We will arrive at Suburban Station at 10:00 PM We will then walk from Suburban Station to the Cathedral Basilica, which is about 1/2 of a mile, for a 10:30 AM tour. After the guided tour, we will walk to Reading Terminal Market (about 1 mile) for lunch. We have a room reserved from 12:00 PM-1:00 PM to guarantee seating since the market is very busy at lunch time. After lunch, (we need to be out of the room by 1:00 PM), the students can shop or have dessert. We will head to Jefferson Station (Market East Station which is below the terminal market) where we will catch the 2:10 PM train (#3421) to Yardley which will arrive at 3:05 PM. If you are not chaperoning, again, you can pick up at the station where I will wait until everyone is picked up.
The students need to bring money for lunch and may bring a camera (optional). If bringing a bag, I suggest no bigger than a small draw-string bag (like the one received at DARE graduation). The dress is summer uniform with sneakers for walking.
