Room 10’s Weekly Update for Weekly Update for Jan. 3-5


Science Fieldtrip Series: UofO Museum of Natural and Cultural History

Our class is fortunate enough to have reserved five dates between now and Spring Break to participate in the UofO Museum of Natural and Cultural History’s science programs.


COST: $10 per student for all five workshop! Please send your money by Friday, January 12.


DRIVERS: With fieldtrips for our class we rely on parent drivers to get us to where we need to go and back again. Depending on how many students can fit in each car we might need as few as six cars or as many as nine. If we don’t have enough drivers for a particular workshop, we will need to cancel the trip. Please let me know if you are able to drive, for which dates, and how many students can fit.
