What to Expect on Our Field Trip

Chaperone Information

Thank you for volunteering to come with us to Old Salem. This is going to be a great trip that the kids will remember for a long time. I have tried to include all the information that I think you will need, but if I missed anything at all please send me a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible! Otherwise, we will see you on Wednesday!
