Dear Parents and Friends,
Thank you to all who accompanied the students on the trip to Plimoth Plantation, the Mayflower II and the Boston Museum of Science! The trip was a huge success, in part because of the terrific parent chaperones who helped kids stay focused and have fun. We all got a bit wet at Plimoth Plantation, and a lot wet on the Mayflower, but many thought the adverse weather served to reinforce just how tough it must have been for our earliest settlers. We stayed dry and warm at the Museum of Science, taking in planned activities and time to just explore the museum. Our students set an excellent example, in stark contrast to students from another school. You should know that your children brought honor to their school, community, family and most importantly, to themselves, with their inquisitive, polite, helpful and fun participation in all facets of the two day trip. I received a number of compliments from the staff at Plimoth Plantation, the Mayflower and the Museum of Science regarding not just the good behavior of our students, but their obvious interest and investment in what was being offered.
