Parents are frequently asked to chaperone field trips, and teachers rely on these parents to provide supervision for a group of students. While field trips are always fun for the students, they are intended to be extensions of the classroom curriculum and are learning activities. This is the parents' opportunity to participate with his/her child in an educational activity and to assist the classroom teacher. Unless it is specifically a family activity, we request that parents not bring other siblings along on field trips. Take this opportunity to give special attention to your child and play a crucial role in making this an important learning activity for the children in the class. The teacher is depending upon your undivided attention.
We do ask for donations to fund the field trips. In addition the PTA has generously provided a scholarship fund so that no one will be excluded from a field trip due to cost.
