Study Trip to Sci-Tech Discovery

On Tuesday, April 7th, the first grade classes will be going to Sci-Tech Discovery Center in Frisco. Afterwards, we will be going to Frisco Commons for lunch, if the weather permits. We will be leaving school around 9:00AM and returning no later than 2:00PM.

The field trip will cost $8.00 per student, please see are the instructions for payment. Students will be eating lunch at Frisco Commons. Students are highly encouraged to bring a disposable/sack lunch and water bottle.

If you are interested in chaperoning, we ask that since you will be in charge of a small group of students that you do not bring siblings on the field trip. If you do plan to attend you must also have volunteer approval through FISD. If you are interested, please indicate so at the bottom of this form. You will owe $5.00 at the door when you arrive at the discovery center.

Please complete the field trip form and return it to your child’s teacher no later than Wednesday, March 18th. We are really excited about our field trip!
