First Grade at O.C.T.
App of the Week
You can complete it at http://www.gcisd-k12.org/page/474
Admission is $5 and will be purchased at the museum the day of the field trip. Due to limited bus space all chaperones will need to meet us at the museum. Feel free to carpool to save on parking cost:) If you plan on attending the field trip, please let me know so that I can arrange small groups. Remember this is a special day for you to spend quality time with your child. It will be best if younger siblings do not come if at all possible.

Your child can participate by collecting labels from the following products: Bic , Campbell's, Pace, Prego, Pepperidge Farm, Swanson, V8, V8 Splash and V8 V-Fusion.
