Field Trip Reminders and more :)

Field Trip!! Our Field Trip to Cranbrook is Tuesday (March 16). Please send students with a disposable sack lunch for the trip labeled with your child's name. We are leaving at 9:15 and we'll return to school at 3:15pm. At Cranbrook we will be viewing two exhibits: Season Changes and Moon Phases (planetarium) and Electricity and Magnetism! Sudents may have time to shop at the store, so they may bring a few dollars if they wish. Students will be responsible for holding their own money. Students may also bring a camera that they will be responsible for. Chaperones, please meet at school by 9am for grouping and instructions. Remember to pack yourself a lunch, and we will need you to drive separately and follow the busses. It's going to be a great trip!
