Zoo Atlanta Info was sent home today-Monday, February 26, 2018! The date is Wednesday, March 21st! This Field Trip is open to any moms, dads, and/or grandparents. Some years I have had almost every parent attend. So save that date and try to come!
Due to the fact that we have to make it back in time to make afternoon school dismissal, we must leave the zoo to return to Ford at 12:45pm. Because of this, we do allow parents to sign their children out from the zoo and stay longer if you would like to. About ½ to ¾ of my class usually opts to do this because it just gives you more one-on-one time and you don’t feel as hurried.
We only have two major things to keep in mind for this Field Trip and they are:
1. We ask that no siblings come along because this is a Cobb Policy for Field Trips.
2. As a chaperone, you will have to drive to the zoo, as we cannot accommodate parents on the buses. Don’t worry about the driving part because we always have parents that carpool and we have a huge, parent caravan following the buses!
Other than those two things, it is a great Field Trip to be a part of. We always have a super, fun time, so if you are interested, please fill out that information along with your child's information.
Hope you all have a wonderful week! See you soon!
