FIELD TRIP TO HERITAGE FARM- TUESDAY, MAY 23
Dear First Grade Parents,
Students brought their yellow field trip letter and permission slip home recently. Please read over the information and send the signed permission slip, lunch form, and money back to school as soon as possible. The deadline is next Monday, March 27th. We are limited to parent volunteers, so we will only be taking three parents per class on a first come, first served basis. Please contact the your child’s teacher if you are interested in attending, but because of limited space, sibling attendance is discouraged. Parents that will be attending will need to have a background check on file with the district as soon as possible. The link for the background check is below. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Van Horne at the email below.
