2nd newsletter from 701

Greetings from 701

It was so nice to see everyone at Open House.  I think all of the students enjoyed showing their parents what we have been doing.  The B.O.G.s were a success today.  The class worked hard and did well focusing on the test.

Field trip forms went home in the Friday folders.  Please fill out these forms and return them as soon as possible.  Our class will be the first class to take a school field trip this year so this needs prompt attention.  Please consider paying for your child’s field trip online(DDE website).  This cuts down on the paperwork required for me and the office.  I will be allowed to take 4 parent chaperones to the art museum.  Let me know if you are interested in attending. You will need to register as a volunteer if you have not done so. Volunteer status must be updated every year.  The date of our first field trip is October 10th.

 Scott Reintgen will be coming to speak about writing his newest children’s book on Tuesday.  Pre order forms were sent home last week and those students will receive their books for signing on that day.  There may be some extra copies available for purchase as well.  The cost is $17.

Attraction Dining guide orders were sent home today.
