A project of Spring Glen School PTA
Dear 5th Grade Families,
We have had a great start to the school year but we need your help to continue to make your child’s learning experience at Spring Glen School as rich as it can be! The 5th grade teachers are planning a number of exciting field trips this year to supplement and extend the classroom curriculum.
The district does not provide a field trip budget for teachers; parents, through the PTA, pay for all field trips. We are asking you to contribute directly to the field trip fund for your child’s grade. We are sending this appeal in response to input from parents. In surveys conducted in 2010 and 2012, parents indicated a strong preference for making a cash donation instead of selling products to raise funds for field trips.
The field trips/activities proposed for the 5th Grade class this year include:
Eli Whitney Museum - Cost: $550
Leitner Planetarium – Cost: $250
CT Science Center – Cost: $1350
In addition, a school-wide field trip to The British Art Museum at Yale has been planned.
Number of 5th Grade Students: 60
Cost per child: $38 (includes $2 per student to cover miscellaneous/unexpected field trip expenses)
Teachers need to finalize classroom budgets now in order to book the remaining field trips. Please send in your voluntary contribution by completing the form to the right.
If you have specific questions regarding the field trips planned, please contact your child’s teacher.
