Class Field trips
There are many field trips scheduled during the months of April and May. Here are a few helpful hints for you and your students as class field trips begin to occur:
- Students must return signed permission slips to their teachers in time to be able to attend their scheduled field trip.
- For students traveling outside of Albany County, permission must be received in writing.
- Some teachers create behavioral contracts with classes prior to long field trips to reinforce positive behaviors. If you have any questions about these, please feel free to call your child’s teacher.
- Dress appropriately for spring weather in Wyoming! Always be prepared for cold temperatures, even if the sun is out in the morning!
- Field trips are an incredible opportunity for our students. We expect them to be on their best behavior while they are out in other communities and represent Linford in a positive manner!
The after school program at Linford will end on May 19, 2016. The last day for SOAR will be May 18, 2016. Please be sure to make arrangements for your children as school will be in session for one more week after this date. Thank you for participating in the SOAR program! And thank you to the SOAR folks for putting together such a wonderful after school program for our students!
This month has been a busy month for field trips and students learning outside of the school building. Recently, 2nd grade visited the Butterfly Pavilion in Denver, 3rd grade went to the Denver Zoo, and 6th grade spent the night at the Denver Museum. All of these classes were extremely well behaved and represented Linford VERY WELL!! Thank you to all of the chaperones and teachers for planning and executing these field trips. Without your hard work, our students would not be able to experience such unique learning opportunities!
The new design has been approved and will be available soon. Look for order forms to come home after Thanksgiving Break! Order forms will also be posted on the website for parents to download and print from home.
Some alterations may be necessary when we go to print, however, the original integrity of the design will be as close as possible. Thank you to all of the students that submitted an entry! We look forward to next year’s contest!
April and May are busy months for students in elementary school! There are many field trips and special events that take place during these months. Remind your children that they need to be responsible with permission slips, lunch, and great behaviors when they are visiting places away from school. Remind them that they not only represent Linford when they are out in different communities, but they also represent Laramie, and their families. We want them to make us all proud!
It is our goal at Linford Elementary to differentiate our instruction as well as practices to meet the needs of students. We are sensitive, that is, to the needs of individual students in order to maintain a safe and optimal learning environment. Currently some of our students have contact allergies to peanuts. These allergies are severe and can result in life threatening situations. Therefore, we ask that parents consider not sending their students to school with any food items that contains or has been manufactured on equipment with peanuts. We recognize that it is an inconvenience and appreciate the community effort that you all are willing to extend to assist us our attempts to have a safe environment for all students. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call Mr. Hardesty or Mrs. Anfinson.
Thank you! 307-721-4439
