6th Grade GATE Field Trip

McDowell Farm School 

 

WHEN:    Monday-Wednesday, October 9, 10, and 11

WHERE:   McDowell Farm School, Nauvoo, Alabama

HOW:      Charter Bus

WHY:      Each day on the farm, students apply classroom concepts to the natural world.  We will learn during a multi-day, overnight program that gives students a unique opportunity to experience the Farm School community. Students share living and dining space, complete projects as a team and are asked to support one another through new challenges. All of this will happen while engaging curiosity, laying a strong foundation for meaningful inquiry based learning and careful observation that leads to evidence based problem solving!

PRICE:  $200.00 per person (increased from $190 due to increase in bus fee) includes charter bus fee, 12 daytime class hours, 2 night programs, 7 meals, 4 snacks, and 2 nights lodging.  

PAYMENT OPTIONS:  1) Pay in full with cash or check made payable to RES and note - Farm School at the bottom.  2) Make three payments of $60, $70, and $70 on September 1st, September 16th and October 1st.

I MUST HAVE PAYMENT IN FULL OR FIRST PAYMENT TO HOLD YOUR SPOT BY September 1st.  Please let me know if you want your child to go but are not financially able to pay all or part at this time.  There are scholarships available and I want ALL to go who want to take advantage of this learning opportunity.  

MUST HAVES:  FORMS!  Elmore County Permission Slip, McDowell Health Form, and Chaperone Form (if planning to join the fun) are both due by September 1st.  PLEASE get them in ASAP once received! I can not tell you what a huge difference it makes when you get the necessary forms in as quickly as possible. 

CHAPERONES: Male and female chaperones are needed for this three day field trip.  Price is the same for Chaperones.  If you LOVE being with children, LOVE the outdoors, and have a positive and encouraging outlook, please let me know you would like to join us! ;)

Be on the lookout!  Forms and sign-up information will be sent home with your child the first few weeks of school.  PLEASE get the forms completed and sent back to me as soon as possible. There is much to do to organize a trip like this and your timely response is a HUGE HELP!
