Field Trip

Our field trip to the Lenape village at the Churchville Nature Center is on Wednesday, Nov. 18th.

  • Be sure to send your child to school on Wednesday dressed in comfortable shoes and warm clothing. (We will be outside for the entire trip.)
  • Send a packed lunch in a disposable bag, labeled with your child's name. No glass please!
  • Any emergency medications (including Benadryl), inhalers, epi-pens need to be packaged and sent in with your child. They will need to be self-administered by your child, under adult supervision.

We will be leaving school at 8:45 am that morning and returning at 2:15 pm. Chaperones should come to the classroom by 8:30 am. We are very excited to experience Lenape life! Keep your fingers crossed for good weather!
