READING COUNTS NEWS: IF YOUR CHILD QUALIFIED, HE/SHE BROUGHT HOME A DRIVER/PARENT PARTICIPATION FORM ON WEDNESDAY. From what we have received so far, we do not have nearly enough drivers, but many have not been returned. Please RETURN THESE ON MONDAY! (If we don’t have yours, another can be found in this folder.) The date for the Reading Counts field trip is set for Monday, May 8, 2017, a state worker holiday. Plans for the Lake Ozark area include enjoying a movie that we provide (must pass Catholic guidelines) at the Lodge of Four Season in the morning (all grades), a picnic lunch (provided by the lunch room, with option for sack lunch students to purchase as well) at the Funny Farm for all, then splitting up in the afternoon. The PK – 2 grades will be staying at the Funny Farm petting zoo, and the 3-8 grades will be playing Lazer Tag. If it happens to be a rainy afternoon, the PK-2 will come back to school for fun & games instead. Of course, for those staying at the Funny Farm, please dress appropriately for the weather. All students should wear tennis shoes on this trip. There will be no cost for students for this trip, but parents attending the Funny Farm will need to pay $8 for entrance (at the farm). EXCEPTION: IF YOU OR YOUR CHILD WANTS TO OPT FOR A POPCORN/DRINK COMBINATION AT THE LODGE– WHICH WILL BE $5 CASH (this will be a can of soda/small bag popcorn (4 c.). We must have popcorn/soda money ahead, as they will be preparing ONLY WHAT WE PREORDER. Early next week we will get the permission forms ready, so be expecting them, and you will also be able to place your $5 cash to this form. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT IS COMING HOME AND FOLLOW ALL STEPS. THIS IS A BIG TRIP & VERY HARD TO COORDINATE SINCE WE HAVE SO MANY DRIVERS. PLEASE RETURN ALL FORMS AS THEY ARE REQUESTED. THANK YOU!
