The trip will start early in the school day on Thursday, April 2, and we will not return to the school building until around 6:30 in the evening.
A second trip will not be far behind. This will be our yearly College Bound field trip. Fourth graders have the opportunity to tour Missouri State University in Springfield. More information about this trip is forthcoming.
We will make preparations, in the next couple of weeks, regarding my expectations on these trips. Each of these field trips are to locations where business is being conducted. We must not be a distraction in either location, and we must be aware and yield to the normal traffic flow. I'll go through all of the ins and outs of the capitol and the college visits thoroughly in upcoming days.
Finally, for each trip, we will request students to bring sack lunches (or lunches provided by the school cafeteria). For the Jefferson City adventure, we also request that each student bring $2 to help teachers pay for snacks and drinks on the bus.
