Field Trip Tomorrow to the College Basketball Experience

Now that the kids are wrapping up their hard work from taking the MAP test this week, they are even more excited for tomorrow's Mavericks Field Trip to the College Basketball Experience.

Parents, please take note of all of the information below:

  • The trip is from 10 AM - 2 PM. (Students will attend their 1st and 2nd hours as usual, then will go to 3rd hour; we will load busses from there)

  • If your student did not turn in money for pizza at the time that they turned in the permission slip or they did not mark that the school cafeteria will need to provide them with a sack lunch, please make sure your student remembers to bring a sack lunch!

  • IMPORTANT: Attire: Students need to wear athletic clothing and tennis shoes.
  • Tight shorts/short shorts, spandex shoerts/pants (including volleyball shorts), tank tops/low cut shirts, and sandals shouldn't be worn. The students will be active during the trip and students will still need to follow school dress code.

  • There is no way to lock up or have anyone look after belongings, thus students are highly discouraged from bringing a bag. Cell phones and wallets should be left at school or, preferably, at home.

May 11 - Worlds of Fun Rennaissance Trip - Leave EGMS at 8:30 am, return approximately 5:15 pm.
