May 1 - Swan Lake Field Trip

We will travel to Swan Lake in Sumter, South Carolina. The purpose of the trip will be to provide students an opportunity to make authentic connections with our learning about habitats, plants, and animals. Permission slips and trip cost information will be sent in April.

We welcome all parents to join us on this trip! Parents will not be able to ride the bus for liability reasons, but you can meet us at the school and follow the bus. We plan to leave promptly at 8:30am and return at 2:30pm. This trip has become a special tradition among the first grade at Heathwood Hall.
