Our 2017 Balarat field trip is just around the corner. I am writing you to learn about any medications that your child takes at home. As we will need doctor’s orders if you would like those medications to be given during this field trip. I have attached the general medication order that you can take to your child’s doctor. Keep in mind these need to be returned to the school as soon as possible with both your signature and your child’s medical provider’s signature. Should you have questions, feel free to contact me by phone or email.

If you know your student will need to take medications that aren’t currently on file at school while on the Balarat Trip, you can print the attached forms out and bring directly to your doctor.Anaphylaxis - Allergy Plan and Medication
Teller Students and Teachers are excited to start planting in the Garden starting the week of May 8th. In order to do that they need YOUR HELP!
Please bring your shovels and rakes on Sunday May 7th from 10 till 12 to turn over the soil and clean up the paths! Even if you don’t have a shovel we could use help assembling our new storage bin or pulling out dead plants.
If you are planting your own garden this spring and have an extra plant or seeds to donate please let us know! We would also love some flower bulbs for fall planting if you are cleaning out your beds and have extra.
Please contact the garden leader Jennifer Baptiste at email@example.com or 617-947-5315 with questions.
