Five Rivers Delta Cruise Field Trip Information

We are taking a field trip to take a Delta Cruise this Wednesday, March 30th. Here are some reminders for the trip:

  • Students will be out of uniform on Wednesday. They should wear a shirt of their choice, long pants, and closed toe shoes.
  • We will leave school at 8:15 a.m. and return by 10:30a.m. We will eat lunch in the cafeteria and have a "normal" day after we return to school.
  • Due to space constraints on the boat, we are not taking any chaperones on this trip.

Pencils Still Needed!

We could still use a few more packs of pencils to make it through to the end of the year! Thank you to everyone who has already sent pencils. If you don't mind sending a package of yellow #2 pencils, we would really appreciate it! Ticonderoga are the best and last the longest, but any brand will do! Thank you!
