Field Trip and Testing

Field Trip
This next Wednesday, May 4, the fourth grade will be going on a field trip to Utah Lake. It is a field trip put on by the Utah Lake Commission. We will be learning about native fish, adaptations of Utah Lake Wildlife, birds, Utah Lake History, wetland habitats and invasive aquatic vegetation.

We will leave the school promptly at 9:15, so all Track II students please be at school by 9:10. We will be back to school by 2:15, in time for Track I students to be dismissed on time. Track II students will be excused at their regular time at 3:30.

Because the majority of time on the field trip we'll be outdoors, make sure your child wears good walking shoes and brings a sweater or jacket. We will be monitoring the weather and will refine our suggestions as time approaches.

As school policy all students are required to purchase a school lunch for a $1.50. If your child has any special dietary needs, please let me know so I can inform the kitchen and we can make accommodations.

The 4th grade will begin testing on Thursday and Friday, 5-6 May. I encourage you to make sure your child gets a good night's sleep before the test. Also, please make sure your child has a good breakfast.

Because of testing we won't be having spelling words or homework this week.
