Upcoming Field Trips
We'll be visiting Aqueduct Park in Palmyra on June 1st. Our class will be going with Mrs. Gleason's class. We'll leave school around 9:15 and arrive at the park around 9:45. This is a rain or shine event. We'll start our day at the park watch how the lock operates. Then we'll all walk the trail that goes along part of the original Erie Canal that takes us into the village of Palmyra. At that point, we'll visit the museums. The trip will end with lunch. The buses will pick us up at the museums around 1:15. This trip is free through a grant.
Monday, June 18th will be our grade level trip to Onanda. The same procedures apply to this trip. Kids have to ride the bus to the park, but can be dismissed from the park with parents if appropriate paperwork is complete prior to the field trip to date. I'll let you know about the cost as we get closer to the trip date.
I'll keep this information in the newsletter for the next few weeks. Please check out the google form below. You only need to fill it out if you would like to chaperone.
Revolutionary War ~ The war has started for us and we've begun to learn about strengths and weaknesses of both forces. We also watched a music video called "It's Too Late to Apologize." It's a cool way to start thinking about the Declaration of Independence.
Read Aloud ~ We finished A Wrinkle in Time this week. I'll admit, the ending surprised me! Now w're on to the historical fiction book called Spy!
PAWS ~ There will be no assigned PAWS for the next two weeks. I am slated to score the ELA next week and I won't be able to get all of the editing done for the kids. The following week is the NYS Math test and we'll lose our Chromebooks for several days that week.
