Today I will be sending notes home about our trip to the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum on November 17th.   Although it seems early, they require a deposit in advanced to secure our place.  The cost of the trip will be $20.00/student.  This price includes admission, a sensory lab experience, the reservation of a lunchroom, and all bussing fees.

Please return the forms and money by September 28th!
