We are definitely keeping busy as we near the end of the school year!

Next Thursday, May 17, the entire Empower Team will be headed to both of the Linn County’s Solid Waste Agencies. We will be leaving around 8:30 AM to the Linn County Solid Waste Agency on County Home Road. Students will be in small groups going through rotations at that site. Before lunch we will come back to the Cedar Rapids Solid Waste Agency on A Street SW and students will get to eat lunch on the top of “Mt. Trashmore” that has been newly developed. Students were asked if they wanted to order a sack lunch from school or to bring their own lunch.

Our end of the year field trip will be on Wednesday, May 30 at noon. If parents are interested in attending, you can buy a ticket at the gate and join us!

Have a wonderful weekend!
