# What's New in C2...

## Field Trip

Monday is our field trip to Wadsworth Tree Farm. We will leave at 8:30 and arrive at the farm around 9:30. Learners should wear a PRS shirt and comfortable shoes. If your child is bringing his or her lunch, please send only labeled, disposable items. (No lunch boxes or refillable water bottles, please.) We'll return to PRS no later than 1:30PM. If you would like to check your child out before leaving the tree farm, please see your child's teacher to fill out the check-out sheet.
