Hello 5th grade families.
Please mark your calendars! Our 5th grade San Mateo County Outdoor Education trip to Jones Gulch is scheduled for January 16 – 19, 2018. The trip is a great tradition and wonderful learning experience for our 5th graders, in which they grow in their appreciation for, and understanding of our environment. During the week, students hike in the coastal redwoods, visit tide pools, explore marshlands, and experience many unforgettable moments.
Today, an important packet of information is coming home in our students’ backpacks which includes permission slips and payment forms, all due by Friday, December 1, 2017. Please ask your student for it!
On Wednesday, November 8th, at 6:00PM, we will have our annual Outdoor Education Informational Meeting for parents in the Learning Commons. The presentation will include an overview of the program, helpful hints for packing, and an opportunity to ask questions.
We are hoping all our students will attend, and we will be happy to discuss details with you, during or after the November 8th presentation.
