Our next Nature Adventure/ECO outing is coming
right up on MONDAY, May 14th.
We will be travelling along the waterways in our community to learn where our local rivers go for a whole day learning experience. (9:00-12:40) We will be spending most of the day outside Please make sure your child is prepared for the outdoors with the following:
· Sturdy Shoes- no flip flops
· Layers of clothing · A sun hat/sunscreen · Lunch
· Water bottle
We will be bringing backpacks with lunches from home (unless we hear you would like us to order a school lunch- let us know ASAP) Chaperones are welcome for the whole day, or even a portion. Please let us know if you
are planning to join us for this adventure. We will be in a variety of locations through town between the rotary on Spring Street and the Rt. 2 footbridge, with a variety of stops along the way for some mapping and science activities. Lunch will be on the Statehouse lawn.
Ways to help:
Walk with class Lead a small group (bring or send your child in with a pedometer) Be a lunch angel Bring extra water Contact a downtown business owner who has been affected by the river - floods, Irene, etc. - who would be willing to share their experience with our class on this outing
Thanks for all you do to support this outdoor learning experience.
