Gr 6 - Nature's Classroom Payments

Thank you to all who sent in in your first or full payment for your student's 6th grade Nature's Classroom trip.

At this time we are experiencing a transitional delay on deposits to our student activities account. Due to that, we are rearranging the trip payment dates and amounts.

Therefore we are NOT collecting the Nov. 2nd payment.
The next payment will be for $150 due on Dec. 7th, 2018. We appreciate your patience while this issue is being resolved.

Questions may be directed to Kathy Mullins in the main office.
