We are excited about our field trip to Maymont Park this Friday, October 24! Permission slips were sent home last week. The $3.00 fee cannot be accepted after Wed., Oct 22. Stephanie Armstrong, who handles the money collection, and writes the check for the trip, will not be at school on Thursday to collect any money. Please make sure you sign your child’s permission slip, and indicate at the bottom whether your child will need to get his/her lunch from school. We are allowed four parents per class to chaperone at no cost. There is a place at the bottom of the permission slip to indicate whether you would like to be considered to chaperone. All chaperones must have a volunteer form on file in the office. The buses will pick us up from school at 9:30 am. We are scheduled to leave Maymont at 1:15 pm.

Well, the weather held out, and we had a FANTASTIC trip to Jamestown! The children were so enthusiastic, and showed their smarts by paying careful attention to our tour guide, and answering questions that proved their knowledge of the history of Jamestown! I was so proud! Thank you to all of the parents who joined our class on the trip. It was a wonderful day of learning! Stay tuned for pics to come!
