Field Trip Permission and Money

A field trip permission form will be coming home in Monday Folders. The 5th grade teachers have outlined all of our field trips for the year. In hopes of making it easier for everyone, we would like to collect the money and permission for all of the field trips at one time. If you have questions, please let me know.

Our first "field trip" is this Friday when we will be having the Science Museum come to Eagle Creek to present to the students. They do a great job and the kids love it!
