Calling All Chaperones
You can complete it at http://www.gcisd-k12.org/page/474
Admission is $5 and will be purchased it at the museum the day of the field trip. Due to limited bus space all chaperones will need to meet us at the museum. Feel free to carpool to save on parking cost:) We will draw three names to be official chaperones from each class since only 3 chaperones will be allowed into our Simple Machines class. If you plan on attending the field trip, please let me know by Friday, February 12th so that I can arrange small groups. Hope you can join us!
