               FIELD DAY is June 17th! The last day of school is June 21 and it's a half day!

            Our science studies have us creating travel brochures to the planets in our solar system. The solar system offers many unique tourist attractions that blend facts with fancy. Students are working in teams to create interesting ways to entwine their facts with things that would attract tourists to their particular planet.  
            In our Massachusetts studies we are delving into the American Revolution and in particular its beginnings in Boston, Lexington and Concord. So far we have done the midnight ride of Paul Revere, the Boston Massacre and the Boston Tea Party. Watch out, King George! We will find out about your Stamp Act in more detail!
            Our class is going on a field trip to Old Deerfield on June 9th where we will learn more about life in that settlement and in that time period, 1704. We have all the chaperones we need for this trip. I will be sending home more information about how that day will shape up as we get closer to the date. You will need to pack a lunch for this field trip!
PERMISSION SLIPS WENT HOME MAY 31 AND SHOULD BE RETURNED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
