Yesterday was an amazing trip! We look forward to continuing our learning about salmon, life cycles and water. Thank you to all of the parents that came to help supervise, with you these experiences are possible. Funding for this field trip was made with the generous support of HCTF (Habitat Conservation Trust Fund) Go Grant that I successfully received which covered busing, honorariums for elders and the bannock, salmon field guides, as well as materials for watershed lessons in class.
Ms. Corbett has also recently received a HCTF Go Grant and we will be going to the Allen Brookes Nature Centre with her class. With the grant we will be able to pay for the busing, some dip nets, trays, print materials and part of the program admission fee. On October 24, we will be going to the centre to do 4 different stations as outlined on the form. Permission forms will be coming home today for this trip. Please indicate on the form if you can come and help supervise. There is a minimal fee of $3 per student attending, supervising parents will not be charged a fee. Please return the form and the $3 by Tues. Oct. 17. You may travel on the bus or you may choose to bring your own vehicle, please indicate your preference on the form.
Thanks for supporting meaningful outdoor learning experiences!
