Ellison ALPHA students are scheduled to take a field trip to the Botanical Gardens on Tuesday, February 17, 2015. We will participate in the Terrarium Ecosystem Program 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 Friedrich Wilderness Park. More information on that later. Please make sure background checks are done asap.
The ECO-ADVENTURES ALPHA NIGHT for Ellison will be Wednesday, May 27th. 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. We would like to have the Ellison End of Year Picnic that day as well. I spoke to our 4th grade ALPHA kids and they thought that might be fun to have both groups together. I hope you will be able to attend! We had so much fun last year even with the little rain we had that morning. It's gonna be so great! More information as the date approaches.
