Permission Needed: Peter Pan Musical Transportation

Dear parents,

On Thursday, May 23rd, 2019 our class will join the Intermediate Department at the Chilliwack Cultural Center to watch a musical.

We have an opportunity to visit the Chilliwack Archives on our way back to explore how the history of our city informs current and future issues we face as a community. To accomodate this addition to our field trip, Grade 5/6 will return to school on foot walking 9291 Corbould St, Chilliwack to Highroad (approximately 3 km).

I will send permission slips home today. Please return permission slips tomorrow. Students without an updated permission form will not be permitted to participate.

I would really appreciate parent support on the second half of the field trip. If you are available to meet us for lunch in the park, visit the archives and the return walk to school please email me directly. (I can give you a ride back to the start point after dismissal if needed.)

Cheers,

Ms. Froyland

Monday

Service day will involve working with our buddies to make snacks for the youth that visit the Cyrus Center. To find out more about the ministy work of the Cyrus Center check out: https://www.cyruscentre.com/about-us/

Tuesday

Regular school day. In the afternoon students will have a work period while we watch the movie. The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind is based on the true story of William Kamkwamba (Maxwell Simba), a 13-year-old boy living in a small village in Malawi, Africa, who created a device that would restore the land and save his people after flooding ruined their grain fields. There are some difficult scenes that I will do my best to skip due to violence or strong language. The movie is rated PG. The movie speaks to themes of the social studies curriculum and provides connection for the grade 5 & 6 current novel studies.
