Field Trip


Friday, January 15, fifth graders will be going on an all-day field trip to Tree People, which is located in Coldwater Canyon. We'll leave MJS at 8:15 and plan to return in time for regular dismissal at 2:25, using school buses.

It will be a free-dress day; students are to dress for the weather. We'll be walking outside on wooded trails and getting hands a bit dirty in the soil. No open-toed shoes are allowed. In years past, rain has postponed this trip, so cross your fingers.

Please pack a waste-free lunch; there will be no place to buy food or drink there. This means use reusable containers. We'll compost any vegetable waste, such as orange peels and apple cores. Please remember to cancel California Fresh for Friday, January 15.

The four fifth-grade advisors, Ms. Berger, and Ms. Lin will be chaperoning. Contact one of us if you have any questions.
