Field Trip to Wagner’s Farm and Pumpkin Patch

This Thursday, October 24th, we will be going to Wagner’s Farm and Pumpkin Patch in Corrales, New Mexico.

We will leave school at 9:30 a.m. and will stay at the pumpkin patch until 1:30 p.m. (We should return to school by 2:00 p.m.)

Alex Villegas’s first and second grade class will be joining us for this field trip. Due to the numbers of students on the bus, we are asking any parent chaperones who can drive to either follow the bus to the pumpkin patch, or meet us there.

Parent chaperones can meet us at school by 9:15 a.m. and Alex and I will have maps with directions for parents to follow. Students must ride on the school bus.

Younger siblings are allowed to join us for this field trip, but per APS policy, younger siblings may not ride on the school bus. They must be driven by a parent. The cost for the field trip is $7.00/ person for any person over 2 years of age.

Fall Break!

There will be no school this Thursday and Friday, October 10-October 11th due to Fall Break! Enjoy your time off!
