Field Trip on March 6th to Veterans Park:
We will be going to Veterans Park in Livermore on Friday, March 6th.  This trip is to explore 
the stream life and take water samples to check for water quality.  Students will be allowed 
to wade into the water up to their knees, so please wear shorts and shoes that can get wet.  
Water shoes are ok or old tennis shoes, but sandals or flip flops are not allowed. Also, 
please bring a small towel, change of clothes (if needed), and a plastic bag to store the 
student’s wet shoes and clothes.  We will be leaving school at 10:30am and returning 
1:30pm, so please bring a bag lunch.  Thanks to the parent drivers that will be chaperoning 
our trip:  Lan Kang, Komali Goddam, Robyn Green, Jeong Mi Kim, Anita Miranda, Carla 
Boufarhat, Xiaoli Sun, and Ellen Cummings

Wheelchair Foundation 
The 5th Grade Leadership Group is conducting a wheelchair fundraiser.  Here is a note 
from the Leadership Group:
Dear Parents,

During the next several weeks, Mohr School is is participating in a district-wide effort to 
support the Wheelchair Foundation.  The 3 primary goals of the project are:

raise awareness about the need for mobility in the world
sensitize students to the issues faced by people with intellectual/developmental and 
physical disabilities
raise money to provide wheelchairs for those in need

This year, our monetary goal at Mohr is to collect donations that represent $2.50 per 
student.  That would be the equivalent of providing approximately 12 wheelchairs for 
people who are unable to afford one.  For less than the price of a school lunch, students 
can change a life by giving the gift of hope and mobility.

Donations in any amount are welcome, and may be made in the form of cash, checks (to 
the “Wheelchair Foundation”), or online at

Thank you for supporting this worthy cause and wonderful lesson in compassion for our 

Have a FABULOUS week!
Mrs. Carrolan
