Field Trip to Dunn Meadow and the Lilly Library 13 May 2016

On Friday May 13th, the entire first grade will be taking a field trip to play in Dunn Meadow and to tour the Lilly Library puzzle room and exhibit.

Children need to bring:
  • their lunch with a drink and water.

  • and sunscreen.

They may also bring any small toy, such as jump rope, book or small ball with them. They may want to bring a towel to sit upon. It must fit in their backpack and they must be able to carry it independently.

If you are walking with us:


  • We will leave school about 8:45 and arrive at Dunn Meadow about 9:30. We will stop in the School of Education Building for a bathroom and drink break.
  • We will have the morning to play and explore in Dunn Meadow. We will eat lunch in Dunn Meadow sometime about 11:30.
  • During the course of the day, classes will take turns touring the puzzle room.
  • At the end of our tour, we will meet the rest of the first grade outside and return to school. We should arrive back before 3:30
