There will be MUCH more information to come, but I wanted to let everyone know that our annual first grade bike field trip is coming up soon! The date for the trip is Thursday, June 2nd, and our class and Mrs. Hughes' class will go in the morning and will then eat lunch at Airport Park. We will need volunteers to transport bikes to and from Airport Park, and everyone will have to bring their child's bike and helmet to school before the trip (unless you can attend and can transport your own child's bike). We will bike from Airport Park, through the neighborhood across to the street, through the Delta Park bike path, and then over the Winooski River bike bridge to the Burlington bike path. This trip was originally planned around a school-wide theme of Community, and it was a great way to show students a part of our community that many have not explored. Now, it's become a first grade icon, along with hatching chicks. :-)
Students can ride on two wheels or with training wheels--all ability levels are welcome and everyone has fun no matter how fast or slow. Since the weather is getting nice, it's a good time for your child to get out and practice! If anyone needs to borrow a bike/helmet, let me know. We have many people who can loan these things without any problem.
Watch for a note about this trip in your child's folder on Friday. And if you can volunteer, please do! We NEED volunteers to make this happen.
