As mentioned above our class has our first field trip scheduled for Monday, October 24th!  This trip will take place at Flying Creek where students will be able to study and experience grassland, woodland, riparian and wetland areas.  The day will be organized so that students will have an opportunity to become 'scientists' and participate in a variety of activities in each of the habitat areas.  Our bus will leave the school around 9:00 am and return by 3:30 pm.  The cost of the trip is $4.50.  You are encouraged to pay online.  More information regarding this field trip will be sent home in the near future.  During outdoor trips we leave only footprints & take only memories!!!
