Actually, we're not sure if its Rivers Day, River's Day or Rivers' Day so we'll leave that discussion for another time. Rivers Day will consist of a number of stations to take place by the river, hosted by presenters, and each class has signed up to visit four stations. The whole of BEST will be making its way down to the beach off Schubert Dr. for a 9:15 welcome presentation on Thursday, Sept. 28. Team Awesome will have used the bathroom (although there will be a porti-potty available) before we leave for the beach and will attend two stations before we have a picnic snack on the sand. After attending the last of our two stations and the closing ceremonies at the beach we will make our way back to the school for the regular long outside play time on the playground before spending the rest of the day as usual inside our learning spaces. Because we will spend the day at the river, please make sure to send a water bottle and dress your child appropriately. It is often chillier down on the open beach and the weather is expected to be cool, cloudy and possibly wet. We can always take sweaters/ hats/ mitts off if needed. Field trips seem to increase the children's appetites with all of the activity so another sandwich or extra snacks in lunches is never a bad idea. If you would like to join us for the day, or part of the day, you are more than welcome. We are aiming to leave the school at approximately 9:00 or you can meet us at the beach. Looking forward to an awesome day!
