6th Grade Field trip to Moody Gardens

Download the permission slip: Moody Gardens field trip form 

We want to see every 6th grader on the trip, however, we have to be sure that when we take students off campus, they are able to maintain satisfactory conduct.  Between now and the field trip we have implemented a “3-2-1″ rule.  Students who receive either 3 cluster detentions, 2 school detentions, or 1 suspension will not be allowed on the field trip.  No exceptions.
