JEKYLL ISLAND FIELD TRIP

This year 5th grade students will have the opportunity to go on a 3-day field trip to Jekyll Island in February. Students received information regarding this trip a few weeks ago. Please be sure to complete and return the forms along with the fees for the trip as soon as possible since the forms were due last Friday. Thank you.

ASSEMBLY LINE SUPPLIES NEEDED

Next week students will be learning about Henry Ford and the assembly line. To help make history come alive, I have planned two simulations, but I need your help. Please consider donating one of the items on the SIGN UP GENIUS below. I'd love to have all items by this Friday, December 8th so that we can begin our first simulation on Monday, December 11th. Thank you!
