Austin Field Trip

It's finally time to discuss our Austin field trip! On Wednesday, May 4, you're invited to attend a parent information meeting in the WRE library (7:15 a.m.) regarding the trip. This will be a great opportunity for you to find out all of the trip details. Please enter the library from the door near the picnic tables (not the front door of the school). All information from the meeting will be emailed to our homeroom parents so no worries if you can't attend.


The field trip will cost $40 per student. Money will be non-refundable as we have to pre-pay all of our expenses. Money will be collected in cash or money order only On May 10, 11 and 12. Money should be turned into your homeroom teacher--not the front office.


While we do not need parent chaperones on the trip, you may drive on your own and accompany us as we make our stops. If you plan on going, please let your homeroom teacher know.
