Please see the following email sent home earlier this evening:
Thank you everyone for returning students' permission forms to take part in our upcoming Pond Study as well as various observation days (TBD). We will be leaving school and walking to the storm pond on Fireweed Crescent for our first observation day this upcoming Monday, June 4th. We will be leaving school at approximately 1:30 pm and returning before dismissal. Students will be working in groups to observe the interactions of both living and nonliving components, wetlands plants, and wetlands animals. Students will be exploring and classifying the different zones (upland, riparian, and aquatic) of the wetlands. We will be using the gathered observations to classify this area as either a: marsh, bog, or fen. As such, it is important that students come dressed for the weather. Please make sure that students bring appropriate footwear to walk to and from as well as to explore the surrounding area. Students should bring: hats, sunscreen, and water bottles. Please send students with light jackets or sweaters so that they are prepared for changes in the weather. Students may bring bug spray if they are comfortable applying it themselves. Parents are welcome to join us for the above. If you are intending to join us, please respond to this email. You will need to sign-in at the office upon your arrival at school. Thank you everyone!
