Sturbridge Field Trip on Wednesday:
We are leaving at 8:35 am. No food or drink is allowed to be eaten on the bus.
Please make sure you are dressed for the weather, this is a rain or shine field trip.
Everyone should bring a disposable bag lunch. Which means that their lunches should be put in disposable bag in a plastic grocery bag that can be carried around and thrown out when they finish eating it. The kids will be keeping their own lunches with them.
I am very excited for the field trip and will be praying for nice weather.
