April 7th Field Trip to the Zoo!

If you want to come with us to the Waco Zoo, you have to sign up through CSISD's volunteer page. Every person attending must have a background check. Please take care of this ASAP. There will not be any last minute sign ups allowed. Filling out the volunteer form does not commit you to go on the field trip. Even if you think there is the slightest chance you may come, please fill out the form. Thank you for understanding. Your child's safety is our top priority!
