Week 32

The Zoo!

We are so excited about our field trip to the Dallas Zoo next Friday! If you have not yet returned your child's permission slip, please do so. We want everyone to enjoy this amazing experience.

Please watch the weather carefully next week and dress your child accordingly. As of now, we're looking at clear skies and highs in the lower 80's. Hats and sunglasses are welcome as long as your child will be responsible for them. The chaperones will carry your child's disposable sack lunch in a bag/backpack (all lunch items will be thrown away after lunch), and water fountains can be found all over the zoo.
