Q2 Week 7 Information

Hello Everyone!

Star of India Field trip

The famous OTA 5th Grade field trip, The Star of India, is about a month away! Our field trip is on February 6th – 7th. We will be participating in a living history experience and pretending we are sailors aboard an emigrant ship in the 1800s. Our students and chaperones will become part of the story and experience life aboard a ship. This is an overnight field trip! Students will need to be picked up the morning of the 7th.

**The program does not allow any students to come late or leave early. As this will disrupt the narrative/flow of the storyline.**

More information coming! 

I am in need of chaperones! If you would like to volunteer on this exciting voyage, please email me ASAP to secure your spot. I have a specific number of chaperones that are allowed to come. So, let me know!
