It was a scramble, though, trying to line up enough last minute drivers each day, which meant I was working late into the night before each trip trying to organize all the details. I've decided I can't keep doing that, so I am going to institute "drop dead" dates for the November trips. I need drivers for 60 for Seattle on November 10. If I don't have enough parents signed up to drive by November 4, I will cancel the trip.
We will take a bus for the University of Washington trip on November 21, so we don't need drivers. However, we still need adults--one per group. Groups, you need to meet NOW to determine who the responsible adult chaperone will be for your group for that trip. Most often it is a parent although sometimes a grandparent or some other relative comes along. Again, if I don't have enough chaperones signed up to accompany us by November 14, I will cancel the trip.
I don't want to be mean about this, I just want to be able to get a good night's sleep. Especially before a field trip!
Still reminding everyone:
I told students they would need their own copies of Comedy of Errors by Halloween. Here is the link again:
If you can't afford to buy the book, let me know. I will see about getting a copy ordered through the AGATE program or the PMS library or the PTA.
