Dear 6th Grade Families,
We will be going on a field trip to the Met! 6A and 6B will be going on Thursday, April 26th, and 6C and 6D will be going on Monday, April 30th.
To culminate our History study of Islam, the 6th grade will be taking a trip to New York’s ultimate resource for art and artifacts of cultures around the world and across time.
Our main focus will be to have a guided tour of the Arts of the Islamic World exhibition, supporting the unit we have just completed.
We will be leaving the school around 10:50am and will return in time for regular dismissal at 3:20. We will be taking the subway to and from the museum.
The cafeteria can pack bagged lunches for us, but you are welcome to pack a lunch instead. The bagged lunch will consist of: a turkey or vegan sandwich on a roll, a nutrigrain bar, a piece of fruit, and a bottle of water. To specify your child’s lunch preferences for the day, please fill out this Google Form TODAY, the 24th of April. (Apologies for the short notice!)
Also, students with orders for an epi pen or inhaler must bring them. We recommend that they put everything they are bringing into a small backpack or bag, which they will be carrying all day.
We hope this trip will be fun and educational for everyone!
6th Grade History Teacher
