We were most looking forward to the trip to Hickory Hill to help our local environment and spend time together. We hope to still do so on Wednesday, May 10th, weather permitting, with a walking field trip to Friendship Park and Ralston Creek where students will participate in group games and Willowwind's annual De-Trash-a-Thon. According to tradition, 3-6 friends will help to clean out Ralston Creek. Specific information about needs for this portion of the trip will be communicated by 3-6 classroom teachers. Given Friendship Park is within walking distance we are no longer in need of drivers. With our revised May 10th field trip to Friendship Park, students should still wear layers, apply sunscreen, and bug spray. Students will be back at Willowwind in time for lunch.
Even though our Hickory Hill field trip won't go as planned, we still encourage families to get involved with Hickory Hill Park, if interested. Families can visit http://www.hickoryhillpark.org/blog to find ways to help where they have Work Days that are open to the public.
Please don't hesitate to ask your child's classroom teacher if you have questions. Thank you for your understanding.
