Transportation-Themed Kindergarten Field Trip
Posted 06/15/2018 05:00PM

Kindergarten went on our final field trip for the year to downtown Portland for our "How we organize ourselves" unit. Our central idea is "Transportation systems allow access to some people, places, and products," so we rode the bus to the OHSU sky tram, observed the traffic on the I-5 pedestrian bridge, took the Max across the river on the Tillikum Crossing, saw the submarine by OMSI, and visited the Oregon Rail Heritage Center. It gave us so much information on the form, causation, and connections of transportation in Portland!

Announcements

Stop by 4th grade classroom 2-A on Tuesday, June 19 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. for an exhibition featuring many of the projects worked on throughout the year.

It's not too late to make your summer plans--register now for Summer Camp and Summerfest!

Mark your calendars--on June 24 FAIS' T-ball team, the Tigers, will celebrate their end of season at a Hillsboro Hops game at 4 p.m. If you are interested in joining the team and their families, please contact Ryan.
