                                         Sept.30-Oct. 4, 2013


Our Field Trip is Finally Here: We will be leaving at appropriately 9:00 am on Friday for our trip to Carter Mountain.  I know the class will love picking their own apples, going on a wagon ride, and learning about the growth of apples from professionals!  Don’t forget your student will need a bag lunch and drink.  Your child will also need a snack that day to be eaten right before our departure. Don’t forget to have your child wear appropriate attire for the trip.  Closed toed shoes are highly recommended!!!!
