1st Grade News: 4/7

Percy Warner field trip information: Students will get dirty!! They will lay on their bellies at the pond and hike in the woods, which can be muddy-especially in spring! Each group will have the opportunity to explore the pond, garden, museum, and trails. The focus will be on making accurate observations as students compare habitats and basic needs of organisms.

What to wear: PPE t-shirt, jeans or whatever bottoms you don’t mind getting dirty, (legs need to be completely covered) socks, and appropriate footwear. Please check the weather to see if your child needs a jacket that morning.

Please consider putting sunscreen and insect repellent on your child before school on the day of the field trip. We are not allowed to put those items on your child at school and children are not allowed to bring those items to school to self-administer.
