Goodall Overnight-We are so excited about our trip next week! We have a great deal of activities planned and are looking forward to building our Mayo community!
We will be leaving at 7:55 sharp on Thursday morning, April 7th. If your child is late that morning, they may be left behind. We are to be at Camp Dakani at 10:00 am so that we can start our rotations.
If you are driving, you can follow the bus or you can meet us at the camp. On the morning of the trip, there will be a packet that you need to get from your child’s homebase teacher. The packet includes directions to Camp Dakani and the OKC Zoo. It will also have a schedule for both days and a group that you are assigned to for the two days. You will also receive a sign to put in your car so that we can identify the Mayo parents.
Today, we are sending home a large, plastic trash bag (for sleeping items) and a packing list of items needed for the overnight. The trash bag is to be returned on Wednesday, April 6th to your homebase area. This is to assure that all children have their supplies they need for the overnight. In the past, we have had students that did not have sleeping bags, pajamas, etc. because they did not bring the bag early. This also makes it much easier to load buses in the morning. We prefer that your child’s supplies are loaded on the bus instead of riding in your car. This way, we are sure that all the students have their overnight supplies. This is their “homework” for this week.
Also, attached to this e-mail is a sack lunch request form. Click here for the form: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9tK7eFBM-uPM1hoMThFNmZxTEE/edit?usp=docslist_api&filetype=msword. If you child will need a lunch from the cafeteria for Thursday, you MUST return it by this Friday, April 1st. Our cafeteria staff must know so they can plan accordingly. The form ONLY needs to be returned if your child needs a lunch from the cafeteria.
If you have not returned any of the slips listed above, we need them ASAP!!
If you were unable to attend conferences, please make an appointment to see your child’s literacy/math teacher in order to review and sign your child’s MAP scores.
Summer School Opportunity: Tulsa Public Schools offers a summer school program for all students entering grades 1-6. If you need an application please let your child’s homebaseteacher know. Your child’s teacher may be contacting you to recommend this program as well. Completed forms are due by April 29.
