* Field Trip Information/Call for Volunteers: 

  • Biennial Field Trip (Chicago Architectural Center) is Wednesday, November 20th from 9:15a-12:30p. 
  • The field trip is $6 for the bus, and we need 3 Level 2 volunteers
  • FACETS Field Trip (Davis Theater) is Tuesday, November 26th from 10am to 12:30pm. 
  • I believe the field trip will be free and will also need 3 volunteers 
  • The 10/20 Field Trip has been rescheduled for 5/19/20, and the $8 fee that was collected previously will be applied to that field trip. 
  • We are still trying to set a date/time for our postponed Halloween "party", which looks like it will be Wednesday, November 27th in the afternoon, but has not been confirmed yet, but we will need volunteers for that as well. 
If you are interested in volunteering for any of the above, please email me (bbrandstrader@cps.edu) or our Room Parent, Shannon Slabada (Shannonslabada@gmail.com) and let us know! Thank you for your support!
