September 16 - 19
Newer information/ newest
We have a transportation plan. We will meet at the front of the school by 7:15 Tuesday morning. Kids' bags will go in the trailer pulled by Mr. Easterly, who will leave later in the day. Fully disposable sack lunches will go in a box on the bus. Each student can keep a pillow for the bus and a small snack (no drinks). They also need their ODS workbook, unless they gave it to me to bring. The workbook will contain their school work for the week. We plan to depart at 7:30. Mr. Chamberlain will take us in the big bus as far as Wilsonville. There we will meet with PAES and join them on their bus. They will take us to Big Lake.
On the reverse trip we'll call after our lunch stop, when we can give an estimated time of arrival. We expect to be back to TVA between 3:30 - 4:00 pm on Friday, but a lot can change between now and then. Keep your phone tree handy. It's a good idea to put some of the phone tree numbers in your phone, especially those parents that you will be calling.
Remember - no food in the cabins; it attracts varmints.
Sunscreen or a hat for our sunny days (40% chance of rain on Thursday).
Boots are handy if they do a class about pond life.They may bring a swimsuit and flip-flops for showers
.A plastic laundry bag is important - just remember to empty it on Friday afternoon!
Look at the photos from our 2010 Outdoor School.
It is SO MUCH FUN! It's a learning adventure you'll never forget.
