Class News

Dear Parents,

We are sending a parent permission slip home for our field trip that is on Friday, May 11th.  Every child must have a signed form to go on the field trip.  We would prefer that everyone bring their own disposable sack lunch. Students may order a disposable sack lunch from the school cafeteria, but it MUST be ordered no later than April 25th

So far, I have 5 parents that have committed to riding the bus and chaperoning our class on the field trip.  I do have one other parent that will chaperone but would prefer to drive and pay their own way.  I still would like some more parent volunteers for our class.  Please email me if you can chaperone.
