Gr. 1 & 2 Markerville Field Trip

Dear Parents,

We have booked a trip to the Markerville Creamery and this field trip is for the Grades 1&2 students only and will be on Wednesday, June 12, 2019.  This is an excellent opportunity for us to attend as it is local and coincides with our Social Studies Curriculum. Grade 1 Social Studies is an introduction to active and responsible citizenship and introduces the concept of community. The concept of historical thinking is applied to the study of community. Grade 2 expands on the concept of community through an examination of specific characteristics of communities in Canada, past and present.  A focus of how communities change over time is also studied. It also emphasizes how change affects communities and historical changes.

We will be leaving Condor School at 9:00 a.m. with a return time of 3:00 pm. and students will be able to see the Hola School and experience life at school in a 1927 classroom.  They will also visit Stephansson House Historic Site which was an Icelandic settler home established in the 1800's. Students will also visit the Markerville Creamery Museum to see artifacts and of course, have ice cream.  Students need to bring a bagged lunch along for the trip as well as water. Please dress appropriately for the weather and for the day of walking. Siblings are not able to attend this field trip, nor extra parents.

 

There is no cost for the trip.  Please return the form below by Thursday, June 6, 2019 and mark if you wish to volunteer. We can only take 2 parent supervisors per grade on the bus and at the historic site.  This is due to Markerville’s restrictions on numbers so you may not attend by driving yourself.  We will let everyone know the parents who will be attending. In order to supervise, Criminal record checks and Child Intervention checks must be on file at the school prior to the field trip.  If you have any questions, please call the school at (403) 729-3868.
