Field Trip Thursday May 11

 REMINDER: May 11th
Grade 4 Field Trip

We will leave Fox Hill at 9:15 and return at approximately 1:30. Students will need a bag lunch with disposable drink and a snack. Please put your lunch/drink/snack in a plastic disposable bag, and write your name on the bag with a Sharpie (or marker).

Per Land’s Sake,
  • Participants should wear comfortable, weather appropriate clothing that can get a little dirty.
  • For safety reasons, all participants must wear closed-toe sneakers.
  • To protect against sun exposure and insect bites, we recommend long pants tucked into socks and long sleeves.
