6th Grade Team

April 19th, 2018

Dear parents of DSA’s 6th graders,

On Friday, May 25th, we will be taking the entire 6th grade team on our annual end-of-year field trip to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science IMAX theater. Since the museum is just down the street from DSA, we will be walking down Montview Boulevard to get there.

We will leave DSA at approximately 9:20 am, arrive at the museum by 10:15, and see the 11:30 IMAX film Conquest of the Skies 3D. We will bring our own bag lunches and eat on the lawns of City Park next to the museum. We will head back to DSA at 1:30 to ensure students are on time for busses and carpools.

Since we will not have time to buy food at the museum, everybody must bring their own sack lunch. We also recommend sunscreen, bottled water, and light rain gear for everyone.

This trip costs $5 per student. We have a limited amount of funds available to ensure that no student misses this trip. Have your child speak with one of us privately to arrange this. We ask that both the permission slip and $5 be returned to Mr. Fearns by Friday, May 21st.

We will also need 13 parent chaperones to come with us. Parent chaperones get in for free and are welcome to drive their own cars to the museum or if they prefer, they may certainly walk Montview Blvd. with us! If you can chaperone, please e-mail Mr. Fearns at: GEORGE_FEARNS@dpsk12.org

Thanks for a great year, and we look forward to seeing the class of 2024 next year as 7th graders!

Please detach this portion and return this permission slip and $5 to Mr. Fearns by Friday, May 21, 2018.
