Our field trip to OMSI is this Thursday! If you have not turned in your field trip money (10.00 per student and per chaperone) please do so ASAP!  Students and chaperones need to be here at the school at 6:45am, the day of the trip. We are asking if at all possible that chaperones carpool and drive. We are only taking 1 bus to cut back on the costs. Currently we have EIGHT parents (between the 2 classes) that have told us they want to ride the bus, plus the 2 teachers plus 60 students on one school bus. Trust me, I have been on MANY field trips in my 21 years of teaching and I WOULDN’T be riding on the bus with 60 kids if I didn’t have to! 🙂  The bus will be leaving at 7:00am and arriving back to the school by 4:15pm. Each student needs to bring a lunch and a snack. Students are more than welcome to bring along books, drawing things, and electronics to entertain themselves on the bus ride. Please remember that all electronics are brought at your own risk. We will be arriving back at Irving as close to 4:15 as possible. Please be at the school to make sure that your child has a ride home unless he/she is walking home. 

On October 31st, we will have a Harvest Activity in our classroom from 12:30 until 2:20. We will be making a lantern (see details below), enjoying a snack, and watching a short movie.  To make our activity successful we are asking for a few donations. Please add your name to one of the listed items on our shared Google Doc if you can bring any items in. We are asking for all items to be dropped off by Monday October 30th. Thank you!

Donation document

On October 31st, we will create an art project that involves a glass jar. Your child needs a glass jar no smaller than a pint and no larger than a quart for this project. Please start saving those jam, spaghetti sauce, pickle, or other type of jar for your child’s art project. The jar needs to be clean and label free. Please have your student bring their jar to class by October 27th. If you have extras to donate to other students, that would be great! We will write each child’s name on a piece of masking tape to label the jars. We don’t need the lids.
