Dear Parents,


Our field trip is THIS Friday! We will leave school at 9:00 a.m. to arrive at the park by 9:45 sharp! We will return to school around 1:30 p.m. The kids will need to bring a sack lunch that we will eat there.

We will be walking around outdoors, so please apply sunscreen and wear tennis shoes. The kids will wear jeans or khaki pants or shorts with the red polo school shirt. We will not be the only school at the park that day, so the red shirts will be helpful in identifying our students.

Keep reviewing those multiplication facts! Finish the race strong!
