FIELD TRIP TO BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS

We are very excited about our upcoming field trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains! 5th grade classes will be attending this field trip on either May 2nd or May 3rd, 2016. This year we are setting up two types of payment plans. The first type of payment plan is to pay the entire amount in full by November 18, 2015. The second payment plan is to pay the first half by November 18, 2015 and the second half of the payment by February 19, 2016. To view full information and cost of field trip, please see the attached flyer or check your students Friday Folder.


**Please note: The informational packet in Friday Folders has incorrect dates on it. The dates of the field trip are May 2nd and May 3rd, NOT May 1st and May 2nd.**
