Up Coming Field Trip May 14, 2005


Dear Parents,

On May 14, 2005 all of the fourth graders will be taking a field trip to the barrier islands

to visit the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, the Wright Brothers Memorial, and the Graveyard

of the Atlantic Museum. The students have been learning about the coastal region of North

Carolina in Social Studies class and we as fourth grade teachers felt it would be fun and

educational for the children to visit the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, see where the first flight

took place, and to see why the Outer Banks are called the "Graveyard of the Atlantic". The cost of

the trip is only $22 per student for gas and rental of the buses because all the attractions are free for

school groups. A school lunch will be provided for each student however if they wish they may bring

their own bagged lunch. Below is a tentative schedule for our trip!!!! A final copy will be sent home with

the students a few days before our trip!
