Week of October 17, 2016

Tuesday is our Kindergarten Field Trip!!!

Kindergarten will be going on our field trip to Dewberry Farm! Your child will need to bring a lunch to eat. Please put your child’s lunch in the attached and labeled gallon Ziploc bag. We will throw away everything, so please don’t include containers that we need to keep! Please send your child with an extra snack and bottle of water for after the field trip at school. Please label their name on it! Please have your child wear their TWE spirit t-shirt and tennis shoes. Don’t forget to dress your child accordingly for the weather that day! If you are a parent chaperone, you will be responsible for providing your own transportation to the farm. Parents/chaperones who pre-paid their entry fee will have a Raptor ID badge attached to this note, please wear it to the field trip tomorrow. If you are not in the system, you will need to come by the school Tuesday morning to get your Katy ISD Raptor ID badge for the day. Please bring your driver license into TWE to get checked in. You will be unable to come into the classrooms the morning of the field trip. We encourage you to carpool together and either meet us at the farm or follow the school buses. We are looking forward to a fun day at the farm!
