4th grade news/notes (9.9.11)

It was nice meeting all of you at Open House last night!  If you were unable to attend, a packet of information is coming home with your child today.  There is a form you will need to return confirming your conference time and email address. 

We are going on our Lansing Field Trip Monday!  Please make sure to arrive to school ON TIME!  Bus is leaving promptly at 9:10am.  Your student will need a sack lunch (everything disposable, please), they may bring a camera, but they are responsible for keeping track of it.  Please dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.  No money is needed...we will not have time to visit the gift shop. 

If you have not given your child's teacher your email address, please do so as soon as possible.  Thank you!
