From Mrs. Hicks' desk…

Thank you for the wonderful response to the Tate Farms field trip! I will send home a letter this week letting you know if you are chaperoning this trip. If your name was not chosen (the names were drawn randomly) then your name will be placed on a wait list for the next field trip. Thank you, again, I appreciate so many of you being willing to go!
