Dear Parents,

An important part of school is getting the chance to have experiences outside of the classroom. As part of our community unit, the Grade 1’s and Grade 2’s are planning a trip to Shihe Village to visit the apple orchards and learn how to make dumplings. Here are the details:

Where: Shihe Village (about an hour outside of Dalian)
When: Friday, October 19th, 2012, between 9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Transportation: air conditioned school bus with seatbelts
Cost: 120 RMB per student
Included: bus, 1 bottle of mineral water, admission to the sites, peasant lunch, dumpling trainer & English speaking guide
To bring: healthy snack (fruit, vegetables or a granola bar) and a hat
To wear: P.E. uniform, socks and runners

We are using a very reputable and safe tour company called Jia Hua Culture International Travel Service. Many of the DMLFNS teachers have used this company before and have enjoyed the trips they have been on.

If you would like your child to participate in this fieldtrip, please return the form and 120 RMB by Friday, Oct. 12th.

Thank you very much!
Mrs. Jensen, Ms. Gillis & Miss Marly
