This Week in Kindergarten

April 29, 2016

Field Trip

We had a successful and exciting field trip on Wednesday! We learned all about investigating, finding clues, and even fingerprinting at the Trophy Club Police Station. At the fire station, we had so much fun taking a tour of the brand new station. We loved seeing the engines and where the firefighters make their food. Thank you to all of our fabulous chaperones who helped make this field trip possible. We would also like to send a special thank you to the Trophy Club Police Department and the Trophy Club Fire Department for allowing us to visit and learn more about their roles in our community.
