Field Trip: Tryon Creek State Park

Important reminder to the parents and students about the upcoming field trip in just a couple of weeks (October 1st). Please remember to wear clothes and shoes that are ideal for hiking in the wilderness, and be prepared if it rains! Tryon Creek State Park is a very large park with long trails, so we will be traveling a relatively long distance on foot. Wear hiking boots or tennis shoes, and depending on the weather forecast, remember your rain jacket. Additionally, we will be returning to school by lunch time, so we will not be bringing our lunches with us. We have plenty of volunteers, thank you, and they will be receiving volunteer info from me soon.

New Library Website!

Please check out the new Library website! Miss Hutchison has been working hard on it. There is information about her as the new Teacher Librarian as well as helpful resources for library business.
