Allan Brookes Nature Centre Trip Tuesday!

This Tuesday we will be going to Vernon to the Allan Brookes Nature Centre with Ms. Corbett’s class.  We will be leaving at 8:30 so please be on time to allow for the attendance and bathroom breaks.  We will return by the final bell at 2:05.

I need only  2 parent volunteers but 6 have indicated they would like to come.  Please email me and let me know whether you will be coming with us or not.  If I am taking more than 2 parents I will need to ask for a $3 fee each as they will only let 2 parents supervisors in free of charge.  Thanks for understanding and letting me know of you wishes.  Please do not bring toddlers or preschoolers on this trip, thank you.

The parents that indicated they want to come on the trip are:  Kristy Cruikshank, Val Nakazawa, Doug Stewart, Ebony Vardal ,  Breanna Naylor, and  Morgan Wilson.

Please bring:

-layers of clothing (we will be outside almost all day)

-a rainjacket

-a thin hat and mitts


-a large water bottle (filled)

-a large healthy lunch

-a small notebook or simple game for on the bus

  • a well fitting backpack to hold your things

Please do not bring electronics, candy or any money on this trip.

We are looking forward to a great day learning about mapping, hiking, discovering birds and animals up close and finding insects in the pond.  It will be fantastic, thank you Ms. Corbett for getting the Go Grant to pay for the bus and partially funding each child’s admission.  We love learning outside!

Wednesday we have arranged for a woman named Mandy Moore to come into our library and teach the Grade 2 about hawks.  She will bring her hawks that protect the airport and work at the Kamloops Wildlife Park.  We will also exchange our books in the library and class.  Remember your books on WEDNESDAY!
