DMNS Field Trip and Valentine's day

On Valentine’s Day, Thursday, February 14th, we will be taking a field trip to the Museum of Nature and Science as well as having a card exchange when we return.

9:00-2:00- Students will be participating in classes at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Each grade level will have their own special class that relates to our science units. A portion of the cost has been covered by STEM fees that were paid at the beginning of the year. There will be a $5.00 per student charge to cover the transportation fees.

Please cut off the permission slip below and send it back to school by Wednesday, January 16th. You can include payment with the permission slip or pay online. Students will need to pack a SACK lunch for that day. Lunches should include only disposable containers, plastic or paper bags. If you would like to chaperone a small group of students, please mark the space on your student’s permission slip. Siblings or other children outside our 4th/5th grade students will not be able to participate in the field trip with our classes. As with our previous activities, if we receive extra volunteers, we will have a lottery drawing to select our adult chaperones and notify everyone, either way, by Friday, January 18th.

2:15-3:15- Students will be able to participate in a Valentine’s card exchange. Students are encouraged to create a fun box to collect their cards and bring cards for their classmates. They may also bring a fun snack for themselves to enjoy at that time.
