Our Art Field Trip for all 8th graders is scheduled on Wednesday,October 2, 2019. We will depart from the Middle School at 8:15 a.m. with a scheduled arrival time at approximately 10:00 a.m. at the Children’s Theatre. Students will see Circus Abyissina: Ethiopian Dreams play. We have reserved a place for our students to eat their lunch (they will bring along from home or if they would like to sign up for one in the office, a school lunch will be picked up by your student before we leave that morning.) “Pop" may be brought in unopened plastic bottles or unopened cans. Please, no large coolers! After lunch, students and chaperones will be touring the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (MIA).While the MIA has no admission fee for this program, there is an $11 fee for your daughter/son to attend the Children’s Theatre. Parents signed a permission, at the beginning of the year, allowing their child to attend field trips. Please make payment no later than Friday, September 20th to help defray this cost. We need to collect admission early to process the paperwork and have a check mailed to the Children’s Theatre.We anticipate buses will arrive back to school at approximately 4:15 p.m. Please have a ride for your son or daughter at that time. They may be in contact with you via cellphone in regards to time changes. If there is a need to make telephone contact after 4:15 p.m., please call (320) 249-6570 (Mr. Conrad’s cell#).
