Spring Field Trips!

Please be watching your student’s home folders and emails from teachers about possible upcoming field trips. There usually is a permission slip needed for each one. Please remember to pack a lunch for these days or ask your student’s teacher to order them a bag lunch from the cafeteria for that day. Thank you to the Red Wing Foundation and I.L.F., who have assisted with some of our admission and transportation costs for 1st-grade trips.
