Field Trip

All of third grade will be going on a field trip to the Chattahoochee Nature Center in Roswell, Georgia on Thursday, April 2nd. We will leave the school around 9:00 and return by 2:00. While there, we will meet with a Naturalist, tour the Discovery Center, visit the Aviaries, each lunch and explore the nature trails. Students are asked to wear comfortable clothing and sneakers.

The cost for the trip will be $15.25 for students and chaperones. We are allowed two additional chaperones for our class. All chaperones must drive to the center. If you are interested, please let me know as soon as possible. (First two win the spots!)

We will eat sack lunches while on the trip. Students may bring one from home in a disposable container or order a sack lunch from school.
