Arbor Day Field Trip....Coming Up!

Hard to believe but May is almost here and the next few weeks are full of activities.  It is important to check your child’s folder every night as various papers will be sent home with new or updated information.
This Thursday we have a small field trip out to Vernon for Arbor Day.  Students will rotate through various stations about trees, plants, wildlife, soil, and water.  They will also each be given a small tree to take home and plant. 
With this field trip, we have four parent chaperones going along.  Due to the large class sizes we thought this would be helpful. 

Students will ALL be eating sack lunches from the school!  This is not an option so students do not need to bring along a lunch. They also do not need to bring any digital devices as we are only going out to Vernon.  Students may bring along a hat and sunglasses if they want. 

That being said, I must also tell you I will not be going along with the students on this field trip.  I will be attending training for my new position for next year as an K-12 Instructional Coach.  I love this field trip and am sad to be missing, but this training is something I cannot miss.  I have all faith in my sub, Mrs. Olafson, and that things will go well as she has subbed in my room various times and knows the students.  She knows what is going on and about the field trip. 

So briefly, Thursday is a field trip to Vernon.  Students will leave Crestwood Elementary around 9:30-9:40 and return about 2:00.  Parent chaperones should meet us at the Nature Center by 9:45 and bring their own lunch as well. 

Next Thursday, May 5th, is our big field trip to Lark Toys and the Eagle Center.  More information about that field trip will be coming home soon.

Let the craziness begin.  Stay tuned for more information and keep checking our class Facebook page for updates.
