Thank you all for your interest on the field trip. I am not picking chaperones yet so…
First you will need to check and see if your background check is current. Then we will send a permission slip with a spot to check off if you are interested. All parents whose background check is complete and want to do it are put into a lottery and we choose the chaperones. The amount depends on how many students, how many seats on the bus and the number the capital allows. The museum does not have a set number, so that is not a concern. Then I’ll let those chaperones know and if they for some reason can not come we continue to draw.
Remember the background checks are only good for 3 years, so if you did it in kindergarten they are expiring this year.
Thank you again for all of your interest!
Please remember there will be no school on Monday!
See you all Tuesday and have a fun and safe 3 days!
We have our buses and our confirmation from the Capital and the Museum. Our trip is scheduled for March 7th, 2018.
If you are interested in attending (we have a limited number of chaperones) please make sure your background check is current. They are good for 3 years so if you applied in kindergarten they will be expiring. If you are not approved by March 1st, you can not be considered to attend for the safety of your child. It takes quite a bit of time for the process so please check early.
First I want to thank all the families for your generosity at our party, the treats for the kids were wonderful and the gifts from you were wonderful! I am truly lucky to be teaching your children and I appreciate all the hard work you do with your children.
