1st Grade News: 9/15

Please remember to send a full water bottle and a snack with your child daily.

First graders will be going on a field trip to Cheekwood in October.
Brumleve/Tanner/Acker: Tuesday, October 24
Faison/Hartsock: Wednesday, October 25

If you would like to be a parent chaperone for this field trip, please let your child’s homeroom teacher know by Friday, September 22. Per MNPS policy, no siblings are allowed to attend.

Parent chaperones will need to provide their own transportation and meet us at Cheekwood by 9:50am and be available until 12:15pm.

The cost is $22.00 per adult. Chaperones will need to pay this at the Cheekwood entrance.

This will likely be the only field trip where we can take a large group of parent chaperones. Our other fields trips limit the number of adults we can bring
