Trips Outside Our Building
We have a fantastic opportunity to attend TWO multicultural performances at the Ordway Theater in downtown St. Paul!
We take walking field trips every third week to the St. Anthony Park Branch of St. Paul Public Library just up the street. The staff reads with us, and sometimes there's even a puppet show! Each child has a chance to check out books as long as their library account is in good standing. The library does not impose fines on children's books, so it is fine to wait until we go the next time to return books, otherwise you are free to visit and return on your own.
Minneapolis Institute of Arts:
Our art teacher, Courtney Oleen, arranges for us to visit the museum after we've enjoyed the four week long Art Adventures curriculum here at school. It is amazing to see world-class art first hand, and trained docents accompany our class.
The University of Minnesota Physics Department puts on a great show at Northrop Auditorium, highlighting the Fun of Physics and how learning about our world can be a blast - literally!
St. Paul Saints Baseball Game:
As part of the reward for reading hard all year, in the spring we get to attend a Saints Game during school hours!!! Read those books!
We are asking for a $25 contribution this year in order to cover the ticket and busing costs of all these field trips, plus the cost of the planners. Checks can be made out to St. Anthony Park with "2nd grade" in the memo line. Thank you!
