Our Tulsa Zoo field trip will be this Thursday. Please be on time 7:45. We will go rain or shine. Girls may bring their AR books on Friday, Oct. 12, for testing. Please leave backpacks and folders at home on Thursday. Children must wear their green Pre-K shirt to the zoo. Please talk to your child about having good behavior at the zoo. For example, staying beside a parent/guardian or teacher, being quiet and kind, and never touching or banging on the glass. Please ask your child to show you the Sign Language name of the animal and ask them if the animal is an herbivore, carnivore, or omnivore. We like to stay together as a class on the trip. If you bring a refillable bottle or cup the concession stands will refill them with ice cold water for free. You can download a map of the zoo from the zoo website. Please thank the zoo keepers because they are doing special feedings just for our class.
