Bring on the Adventure!!!
Dear Parents:
Here are some activities to remember for the month of April. You will find attached the permission forms for the first two outings, which will take place Saturday and next Tuesday. We will of course need drivers for both events so we will contact the volunteers that missed out on the cancelled trip to Carp for their preference!! Or better yet, call Akela (742-8206) to let me know if you prefer to drive Saturday or Tuesday. Thanks!
