    Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,

    Thank you for all of your support on our big field trip! The students had a wonderful time learning and discovering the San Juan Capistrano Mission. Our next field trip is next Tuesday, June 5, 2012 to Keys Ranch at Joshua Tree National Park. We will leave around 9 and be back about 2 pm. If you would like to volunteer, let me know. Fingerprinting and tb testing is a disctrict requirement for parent volunteers. Information was passed out in the beginning of the year, but I would be happy to discuss it with you if you need more information.

    For our in class mission project we need materials that we can use for constructing a mission including, but not limited to: boxes, cardboard, paint, rocks, sticks, etc. Groups can start bringing in supplies for mission construction.

    Let’s have a spectacular week!

    Your choices can change the world,

    Mrs. Dahlberg
