Button up your overcoat, bundle up the kids,
we are going on an adventure tomorrow with
Room 207, 5th Grade Mighty Acorns,
to Sauganash Prairie Grove.
It will be cold, but sunny.
Our bus, and "warming center" will be parked on Bryn Mawr within view of our work site.
We will be doing hard work.
And we will be experiencing the bracing reality of winter
that other animals face daily,
and that plants monitor and measure,
and judge and wait for... the change.
Within a few weeks (or days) the Sun we re-assert itself.
The polar vortex will withdraw,
and spring will spread across the wild lands.
But, we will have witnessed winter,
it's stark and beautiful reality.
And we will know more than we did before.
Please join us for this last winter trip.
Meet at the fish tank at 9:00 for briefing, coffee, and to outfit our students with extra winter-ware as needed.
Bus leaves at 9:30.
Back to school at 12:30 or so.
