Our end of the year (extended day) trip to Shelburne Farms will be on Tuesday June 7. The purpose of the Shelburne Farms trip is to celebrate the work and accomplishments of the past year in a fun and meaningful way. We want this experience to be successful for as many students as possible. it will be a full and rewarding day.
After a special breakfast from parents and teachers the students will leave SA at 9:00 and will be returning to SA at 6:45 pm. If you have planned on chaperoning the trip, we ask that you consider carpooling due to limited space on the bus. A chaperone request form is attached. We have we hope you will still consider joining us. Please let your classroom teacher know. We have worked with Shelburne Farms to limit the cost of this trip. However, between bus costs, food (lunch, dinner and snacks) and using Shelburne Farms staff/resources/grounds we are still going to need to ask families to assist in making this trip happen. We are asking that families contribute $20 in cash or check.. Please make checks payable to the ⅘ Team at the Sustainability Academy. If you cannot pay $20 please contribute what you can or talk with your child’s classroom teacher. If you would like to sponsor another child for this trip, it would be greatly appreciated. We are also asking that chaperones pay a $10 fee to cover their food and expenses.
Sincerely, The ⅘ Team
