So much to do and so little time left! Cambridge applications came home last week for those interested in the program next year at Oliver Middle. All applications will need to be mailed or delivered to Oliver. Also it is very important that you return the Mammoth Cave field trip permission slips ASAP and let us know if your child will be going or not. We are sorry for having to put a limited amount of chaperones, but we simply do not have $1200 to get another bus just for chaperones. If you are planning on driving, we will still need you to send your payment in for cave tickets to ensure you a ticket with our group tour.
