Update: Feb. 1: We had such a great time at the farm today! Thank you, Mrs. Meth, Mrs. Hwang, and Mrs. Bayramli for being our parent chaperones. The children were so excited at every station. Everyone had the chance to:
- meet cows, chickens, pigs, sheep, goats, peacocks, roosters, rabbits, ducks, geese, and baby chicks!
- hold baby chicks for the first time! ***this was a highlight, of course :0)
- learn about how cows are milked
- meet a 3,000 pound ox named Patches
- see a working bee hive
- walk through a beautiful garden patch to see strawberries, lettuce, onions, sweet potato, cotton, and many other fruits and vegetables
- plant real radish seeds into individual pots of soil
Take a look at our field trip pictures!
Please mark your calendars for Thursday, February 1st for our field trip to the Centennial Farm! ALL Kindergarteners, (both AM and PM schedules) will attend school from 8:00 am - 12:00 pm.
Update: Jan. 31, 2018: All parent chaperone slots have been filled.
Things to remember:
- Give your child a hearty breakfast in the morning so they don’t feel hungry before lunch time.
- ALL students must be at school from 8:00 – 12:00 that day.
o Do not be late- we need to be ready to board the bus at 8:15 after taking attendance.
o Be prepared for morning traffic in the parking lot as the entire school begins at 8:00 am. You must park your car in a parking spot and walk your child to the door ***no double-parking, or leaving your car unattended in the loading zone! Do not park your car in the loading zone, or the buses cannot come through.
o We will dismiss from the classroom; do not pick up your child as we exit the bus. Do not park your car in the loading zone, or the buses cannot come through.
- Send a packed lunch and disposable drink for your child in a fully disposable bag (i.e. gallon ziplock bag, brown paper bag, etc.) No Tupperware, silverware, reusable water bottles, etc. Use only disposable items. Clearly label the bag with your child’s name on it.
o We will be eating lunch AT the farm, and we don’t want the children to accidentally leave water bottles, lunch bags, ice packs, etc. at the farm.
- Be sure your child uses the bathroom at home right before arriving at school!
- Review safety and behavior expectations with your child. Students MUST be good listeners and exhibit our Woodbury Values.
- Optional: Having your child wear a Woodbury shirt helps makes him/her easily identifiable while at the farm.
- CDC/Kid’s Club/iPAC students: please be sure to remind the after school centers that your child will be released from school at 12:00 pm that day.
Please return the field trip permission slip, with the requested $10 donation in the envelope provided in your child's Conduit by Friday, January 19th. Our class can take three chaperones- this is a great day for parents who often can't volunteer regularly in the classroom to come on a one-day volunteer opportunity to join your child for school! Chaperones will be in charge of a group of children to keep them safe and accounted for. Please email me if you are interested! In the event that our class has more than the necessary amount of volunteer chaperones, we will draw names from a hat for a random selection to be fair.
