Field Trip

France, Pond, Water, Trees,
Foster Woods

The third grade class will be learning at Foster Woods with Pam Holz, on Monday, September 29th. We will leave school after recess at 12:30 and return around 2:45. We will learn about the pond and study the water in it as well as learning on the path and in the timber.

Please contact us if you would like to join us. Also, please make sure your child wears tennis shoes or closed-toes shoes. We are not sure what the weather will be, so please dress your child appropriately for being outside, exploring in the timber and near the pond.
