UMAC White Belts Reminder

June 9 - 4:44PM

Dear Parents,

I want to remind the Sprouts families that the United Marital Arts Center (UMAC) is holding a graduation tonight at their location in Warwick to give your kids the white belts they earned during classes here at FOG. If you would like to attend, it begins at 6:15 PM. Nothing is needed, other than the kids.

Enjoy! -Miss Deb

Community Service Vouchers

June 9 - 4:44PM

Good afternoon to all!

I see that several families are unable to find their Community Service Vouchers to complete for credit on their accounts. I am attaching the voucher slips to this email so that those of you who wish to receive credit for any hours worked can fill them out and fax to 973-823-0805, drop off at our drop-off box at the school, or mail to us before accounts must be settled this month.

Field Trip Today

June 8 - 9:32AM

Dear Parents,

I have been looking at the weather map and I do not want to cancel today's trip because the kids would be soooooo disappointed, but we can tweek things a bit. I see on the radar map that it should be raining there by about 11:30. We can still meet at the beach and do the program with the park naturalist at 10:30, but once she is done, depending upon how the maps appear by then, we can visit the nature center for a bit and then find an open pavilion and eat our lunches together under shelter and then call it a day by about 12:30.

If parents wish for their kids to swim and become kidsicles before the rain comes, that's ok too. I know that kids often don't care about temperature as much as we do. At least they can play a bit on the beach sand, swim if parents wish, learn some things about the lake and bugs, learn some more in the nature center, eat a hardy lunch, and feel like they've had a good time on their last day.

Let's do it!

High Point Trip Info

June 6 - 2:57PM

Good afternoon parents,

Please find the attached form for our last day of school High Point beach day. Please realize that we have NO staffing at the school on this, our last day of school. We hope you can all join us! We love to have a comfortable visit with everyone on the last day - it has been a tradition here at Fields of Green for many years.

You can email me your responses, and if your child (Sprouts and older students only) needs a ride to the park, I will pair your child up with a parent who is willing to drive from the school. You can then make an agreement to arrange pick up of your child at the end of the day with your child's chaperone. We truly appreciate each and every parent who offers to help chaperone kids who would otherwise not be able to go if their parent has to work.

Thanks! Miss Deb

Science Projects and Biking

June 2 - 12:28PM

Hello Elementary/Middle Parents,

Make sure that your child brings in his/her experiment tomorrow already completed! If the results end up being something that isn't able to be left here or shown, maybe send in some of the materials and also pictures of your child doing the experiment with pics of the results. Please don't email them and ask me to print them out. They have been working on their display boards but we need something physical to go in front of them.

Biking on Monday will take place at 9:30 am. We load up bikes first and then drive to Maple Grange. Aaron has a nice morning planned there for the kids! If you can drive, you can arrive at school late with your child if you want. I won't consider you late on that day if you are driving.
