Irvingdale Field Trip May 19th:

All students need to turn in field trip lunch sheets by May 6th. This helps us get a count of how many sack lunches we need, and lets us know that parents are aware of the trip.

A few reminders for the field trip include:

-Please ensure that students were appropriate clothing on the trip. Tennis shoes and comfortable clothing are recommended.

-Students bringing a sack lunch from home need to make sure all items can be thrown away when the lunch is finished.

-There are no restrooms at the park. Students will be encouraged to go before we leave the building.

-We will be leaving Beattie around 10:45am and walking back around 12:30pm.
