This is a re-scheduled trip and I have already spoke with Mrs. Rachelle about having to re-reschedule this trip because the forecast is again calling for rain. Sorry about the endless trip forms coming home but expect another one for the zoo trip should it get rained out. If we do end up going we will have lunch when we get back to school. Please, send sunscreen labeled with your child's name on it if you would like.

We will eat lunch at the ball park. No money needed. Please, dress your child appropriately for the weather and send sunscreen if you would like (please write your child's name on the it).
