FIELD TRIP TOMORROW, Thursday, April 6, 2017

Make sure your child is wearing a Red T-Shirt tomorrow!!
I am super excited!!

The field trip to the OIL RANCH is this Thursday, April 6, 2017. I will be sending home information about the field trip. One question I have been getting is about lunch. If your child is bringing a lunch from HOME, please make sure that it is a sack lunch. Your child needs to be able to throw away the sack lunch when they are done. We will not be carrying around lunch boxes. Also, please pack a lunch that does not need an ice pack to keep cool. Thank you.
