Cedardale Field Trip

On Friday, June 17, 2011, the Fifth Grade students will be going on a field trip to Cedardale in Groveland, MA.  Cedardale is an outdoor facility that offers swimming, softball, volleyball, tennis, basketball, whiffle ball (in a Mini-Fenway Park!) and miniature golf.  The trip takes place rain or shine.  We will be leaving Memorial School at 8:30am and returning approximately at 3:45pm.  Please note that this is after dismissal time and you will need to pick up your student in the Memorial School parking lot.
            Cedardale is offering an A la Carte Menu for students and chaperones if they wish to purchase their lunch at Cedardale.  This is not included in the field trip price.  The menu is attached and a packing list will be sent home as we get closer to our trip.
            We will need at least 14 CORIed chaperones to make this trip successful.  CORI paperwork can be filled out at the business office at the High School.  It typically takes 2-3 business weeks to process.  Since this is a trip for the fifth graders, please do not bring other siblings.
            The price of this field trip is $15.00- this includes the gate fee, bus, unlimited beverages and an ice cream.  Thanks to the PTO, they have defrayed many of the costs.  Checks must be made out to: Memorial Elementary School.
            Signed permission slips and payment must be returned by Wednesday, June 8th
**Look for the yellow permission slip in backpacks...already went home!
