Feb. 5th- Feb. 9th


Amon Carter Museum & Love Street Park

Every year we are given the opportunity to take a field trip to the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth. Each year Alice Walton pays for the schools in our area to attend Amon Carter. We appreciate the opportunity and look froward to the experience our students will have. **Due to space, parents may NOT attend the museum portion of the field trip**

After we finish our museum tour, we will head back to Weatherford for lunch at Love Street Park. Parents are welcome to meet us at the park for lunch!
