Field Trips/Outreach trips for this year:
An E-mail requesting Chaperone sign ups will go out in August/September
We have 16 students in our class, that will give each family an opportunity to sign up for at least 1 field trip if they would like. Parent Chaperones are selected based on a first respond- first selected policy according to the time/date stamp of their response to my Field Trip Sign up Email. As soon as our Field Trips are approved, The Field Trip Sign Up Email will be sent out in August/September with a list of all our Field Trips/Outreach trip and will request that parents reply to the e-mail ASAP indicating if they would like to attend any of our Field trips this year and to list their 1st, 2nd, 3rd choice. I do my best to give everyone who responds either their 1st or 2nd choice. If we have parents who cannot attend a field trip then I will open up additional spots to those who did respond first for an additional field trip. Since Sign ups are based on a first respond/first selected basis,please be sure to list your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choices when you respond. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact me.

We had a fun filled day on October 12th exploring God's creation at our 1st Field Trip this year to Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Gardens in Arcadia where we learned more about native and exotic plants and reviewed the plant life cycle. We also explored the structure of different plants, including a review of plant parts, their functions, and how plants make their own food through photosynthesis. We also discussed what a plant needs and how a plant adapts to its environment. We also learned about all the ways we use plants- food, clothing, shelter, medicine, etc. We explored green houses, bamboo fields, cycad forests and saw turtles, fish, peacocks, geese and ducks. We even got to see a living dinosaur (living plant shaped like a dinosaur that is).
