5th Grade Field Trips

The Bear Branch 5th graders will be traveling to their zoned middle schools (CMS or KMS) for 6th Grade Orientation on Tuesday morning, January 24, 2023. If your child will not be attending their zoned middle school, or if they are not zoned to CMS/KMS, please complete the appropriate field in the 5th Grade Field Trip Permission Form. All students attending BBE Spanish Immersion program will be assigned to CMS, if students choose to continue in the program. Creekwood is the feeder school for the BBE SIP program.

Parents interested in Middle School Orientation information are invited to attend the 6th Grade Parent Information nights: The CMS information night was held on Tues, 1/10/23 6:30 pm @ CMS. If you were unable to attend, CMS has provided a link to the CMS Parent Night Slideshow. The KMS information night will be held on Thurs, 1/26/23 6:00 pm @ KMS.

The Bear Branch 5th graders will also be traveling to BizTown on Tuesday January 31, 2023. Buses will depart Bear Branch at 8:30 a.m. and return approximately 2:30 p.m. Please pack a fully disposable sack lunch including drink for your child. An email was sent to parents on Jan 4, 2023 with details on BizTown curriculum training dates to become a chaperone. No adults other than approved chaperones are allowed on this field trip.

In order for your child to participate in both field trips, the permission form must be completed prior to the field trip.
