Field Trip

On Friday, May 15th, the fourth grade is going to Conner Prairie.  We will be leaving school around 8:30 a.m. and returning to school around 1:40 p.m.  Conner Prairie is an outdoor, living museum, so your child will need to wear clothing that is appropriate for the weather that day and comfortable closed-toed walking shoes.  We will be going rain or shine.

The student cost for the trip is $10.00, including admission and transportation.  We plan on having sack lunches available from the cafeteria, so your child may purchase one here at school as a regular school lunch or bring a sack lunch from home.  We ask that the lunch be unrefrigerated and in a disposable container (i.e., paper bag) so that the container may be thrown away after we eat.

We will need approximately 30 parent chaperones.  To be a parent chaperone you must have a volunteer form on file in the office.  The volunteer form requires the successful completion of a background check.  The cost for chaperones for the trip is $15.00.  Please send this amount with your child’s fee and permission slip.  Chaperones can either ride the bus with us or drive themselves to the site.  All chaperones are to bring their own disposable, unrefrigerated lunches.  Volunteer forms can be requested through your child’s homeroom teacher.

We are collecting money for the trip now through May 6th.  Please send cash or check payable to “GIS.”  Please sign the permission slip (a link below) and also indicate if you are interested in being a chaperone for the day.  Also indicate if you have already turned in a volunteer form for the 2013-14 school year.

If you have any questions, please contact your child’s homeroom teacher.
