Attached is the permission slip to allow your child to attend the Fifth Grade Field trip to the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia and a walking tour of Old City Philadelphia on Friday, June 2nd. We will be taking the train into the city. Please meet at the Doylestown Train Station at 7:35 AM and check in with your homeroom teacher. Our train leaves at 7:56 sharp. If you are a chaperone, we recommend car-pooling or getting a ride to the station because parking is limited.
Your child should wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. Please have your child bring a completely disposable lunch and drink (no glass bottles, please). Name should be clearly labeled on bag.
Do NOT have your child bring a backpack or any electronic devices. These items are not allowed in the Constitution Center, and the chaperones or teachers cannot be responsible for them.
We will return to the Doylestown Station at 3:20 PM. Prompt pick-up is appreciated. If someone other than a parent is picking up your child, please send in a note ahead of time with your child. Please send in the permission slip by Friday, April 28th.
If you are interested in being a chaperone, please e-mail your homeroom teacher by May 1st. We will draw names to determine who will go with us, and let you know as soon as possible. The cost for chaperones will be $25.00
We are looking forward to this educational experience to historic Philadelphia. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
The Fifth Grade Team
Please return pemission form by April 28th.
