ZOO FIELD TRIP
Field Trip Forms & Money due: April 1st
An educational field trip has been scheduled for our first graders. This trip will reinforce what we have been learning about animal adaptations, map skills, and animal research. Our field trip will take place on Friday, April 10th. We will leave by bus at 8:45 a.m. and will return to McCulloch at 12:00 p.m. We will enjoy lunch in the classroom once we get back. Your child will need to wear weather appropriate clothing and tennis shoes. In addition, please have your child eat a good breakfast, since we will be eating lunch later than normal.
We would love to have parent volunteers join us at the zoo. Each parent attending will need to pay at the gate, the group rate is $6 each.
Parent volunteers will need to have an updated background check completed through Republic Schools. Please see Dawn or Shelli in the office for this paperwork. The paperwork takes at least a week to process, so please do not wait till the day of to complete. Thank you!

I wanted to let you know of wonderful opportunity for your child to shine and show their leadership here at McCulloch. On Tuesday, March 31st, our kindergarten, first, and second grade leaders will be putting on a musical performance in the McCulloch Gymnasium! The theme for our concert is “Celebrate You and Me” and students will be singing songs that center around being positive, celebrating differences, and how to show respect.
Each performance will be 10-15 minutes in length. There will be three of these performances throughout the course of the evening. Grade level concert and arrival times are listed below.
