Our Field Trip to the State Fair is Monday, September 30th. Please arrive at school by 7:15 A.M. We plan on leaving by 7:30. We should arrive back to school by 5:00 P.M. On a positive note, there will be NO homework. I still have a few students that have not paid or turned in their permission slip. If this is you, please turn it in as soon as possible.
Students are going to receive their yellow Holy Cross field trip tee-shirts this week. Students need to wear them on Monday– it makes them easier to keep up with in the crowd. A Holy Cross fleece or sweatshirt may be needed. Students may wear jeans or khakis for pants or shorts. Wear comfortable shoes!
Pack breakfast foods and/or a snack and drink for the ride to Richmond.
If the students want, they may bring cameras, sunglasses, and/or hats. They will be responsible for any of these items that they bring.
You may want to bring an empty cinch bag (backpack) into the fair to put things in as we collect things throughout the day. You may also want to pack a snack in it if you want to save money at the fair.
We will be eating lunch at the fair, so plan to bring additional money for lunch and snacks, maybe around $15.00.
Because of safety and insurance concerns, no Holy Cross students will be allowed to get on any rides!
Students will be allowed to bring books, games, electronic devices,
etc. for the trip as long as they have HEADPHONES.
Students will be responsible for their own possessions on the trip.
Our class will plan to stay together for the educational tour during the
morning, and we will then separate into groups to pursue individual
interests throughout the afternoon. The chaperone per group will then be responsible for the students in each group.
We will be leaving the fair around 2:30 p.m. and returning to school
close to 5:00 p.m. Please be at school around 5:00 P.M.
