Montgomery Street School
Grade 2-5 Outdoor Club Ferris Park Outing Confirmed
November 21, 2017
We received notice from the district bus garage that the trip to the Ferris Street Park, tentatively rescheduled last week for Wednesday, November 29th, can proceed. It is being hosted by the Nature Trust of N.B. As before, we will eat lunch at school and travel to the park by school bus. You are responsible for arranging transportation home for your child from the Ferris Street Park at 2:00PM; the planned program will begin at 1PM and last 60-75 minutes. The goal for the outing is to have the children become more appreciative and protective of nature before we begin the other activities planned for this school year. We will hike along the park’s trails, learn how to identify trees, do tree bores to determine the ages of trees, and play 'stewardship' and 'species at risk' games.
Because the Nature Trust of N.B structures their program according to the number of children attending, and to avoid confusion at school and home, this form must be signed and returned to me by this Thursday (Nov. 23rd). No late or previously dated forms will be accepted.
If you can help supervise this outing, please let me know. Children often model their parents’ example when they become adults. Seeing you enjoying physical activity in the great outdoors would be a wonderful gift from you to your child.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at school (453-5433).
