Braun Station ALPHA students are scheduled to take a field trip to the Botanical Gardens on Monday, March 23rd. We will participate in the Terrarium Ecosystem Program and visit the Rainforest Adventure Exhibit while at the Gardens. We will leave school about 9 am. We should have space for parents to ride with us on the bus if they choose. Please make sure you have your background checks completed before the field trip. I will check about a week or two before the trip for a list of parents eligible to chaperone.
I am also planning a field trip to Government Canyon. More information on that later. Please make sure background checks are done asap.
I have scheduled our Braun Station ECO-ADVENTURES ALPHA NIGHT for May 21 at 6pm in the cafeteria. Students will share their final research project displays with family and friends. We will begin this project either end of March on beginning of April. Some information is posted on the Research tab of our website. More information will be added later.
The Braun Station 2nd Annual ALPHA Picnic is scheduled for Sunday, May 24th from 12-3 at Phil Hardberger Park West off NW Military. I hope you will be able to attend!
