Field Trip: April 10, 2019

This information from Mrs. Young & Mrs. Nelson is to spark interest about a possible upcoming field trip! They would like to take a group of students to DPAC for a matinee of Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief: The Musical. The field trip would take place on April 10, 2019 at 1:00pm and the group would leave Tar River at noon. We would provide transportation to the theater. At this time, the tickets seem to be around $34.50 for the group to all sit together. Chaperones are also necessary, but please know that seating is limited on the bus. Please indicate if you are interested in your child attending and/or if you are interested in chaperoning on this form.


PLEASE NOTE: The total price of the field trip is $43.17. Please submit money to Mrs. Nelson before February 26th. Tickets must be purchased by this date.


Hope all the kids can attend this wonderful outing. This is the kind of thing that makes school fun! If you have difficulty paying for the trip, please contact Dr. Wrenn to work out arrangements for scholarships.
