Hi, parents!

If your child would like a personalized book(s) signed by Mr. Brown, please return the attached order form by Monday, March 19th.

We will be going to the Adventure Science Center for our last field trip next Friday, March 23rd from about 10:00-1:00. In addition to the chaperones who have already signed up through sign-up genius, we would like to invite anyone who wants to attend as a chaperone to join us for the trip. If you would like to be a chaperone, please send in $9.00 (admission + planetarium) in the form of a check or cash and give to your child’s teacher by 8:00 am Wednesday, March 21st. We need to make groups and prepare in advance in order to be ready for the trip. If you miss the deadline or decide last minute to join, the charge for admission and the planetarium at the door is $22.95. Thank you for understanding!

Please have your child wear his/her field trip shirt with P.E. shoes. Your child will also need a sack lunch that is fully disposable. Thank you!
