This note will be sent home with students this week:
As you already know, the fourth graders at McGrath will be given the opportunity to participate in field trip to Mackinaw in May. It is a wonderful opportunity to spend time with fellow classmates and teachers while seeing the historic places they’ve learned about throughout the year. It is a nice way to end the fourth grade experience; one that both students and teachers look forward to annually.
Students earn the privilege to attend this field trip by following the “High Fives” and working hard during the school year. Unfortunately, students who continually choose to not follow the “High Fives” receive office referrals. Students who receive three office referrals, beginning February 10, 2014 and ending May 8, 2014, which is the day before the field trip, may lose their privilege to attend the field trip. Our hope is that every student will earn the right to go and not miss out on this wonderful experience. We ask for your support in talking to your child about the importance of school rules to help ensure that all students will earn the privilege of going to Mackinaw. Please take a minute to go over this letter with your child. It is important that they understand the expectations, and then sign, have your child sign, and return this form to your child’s teacher by February 17, 2014.
