THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SENDING IN KLEENEX!!  WE WERE GOING TO NAME NAMES, BUT BOXES HAVE APPEARED ON OUR DESKS, AND WE AREN’T SURE WHO THEY CAME FROM!  ALLERGIES HAVE BEEN AWFUL THIS YEAR, SO AGAIN…THANK YOU IF YOU SENT THEM IN  
 
1. Last trip to Family Harvest Farm this Thursday – Includes Lunch: We have 1 more trip planned to Family Harvest Farm.  The last trip will be the whole class.  Please consider driving – we need 4-5 parent drivers for the whole class to attend. Drivers need to be here by 9:40am, and we will return to campus by 12:45pm.
 
We will be making and eating Beef Tacos out at the farm. 
1. Send a sack lunch if your student does not like tacos, or has food allergies.
2. Students can bring something to share (potluck) if they want. It would need to be something that doesn’t need heating up, or keeping it cold (unless you send it in a small cooler)
3. Everyone needs to bring a water bottle! Before lunch, students will be working on their mural, and working in the fields planting/weeding/harvesting.
 
Drivers need to have a copy of their 100,000/300,000 liability car insurance on file in the office.  If you can drive, please let us know how many students you can take
 

Thursday, May 16 (9:40~12:45) Whole Class Drivers:

2State Testing Dates:  Make sure you do not schedule any appointments/trips/etc during these dates.  It is very DIFFICULT on your student if they miss a test(s) and have to make them up. Testing takes place in the mornings.
