Our field trip to the Jubilee Farm Pumpkin Patch is coming up on the morning of Friday, October 18th. Students will come to school the normal way and we will get on our field trip bus first thing. Please make sure your child is on time to school; the buses will leave promptly at 9:20. We'll arrive at Jubilee Farms by approximately 9:45 AM. At the farm, we will rotate through several fun and informative stations with the very knowledgeable farm staff, including What Food Comes From the Farm, Animal Care, Hay Maze, and of course, Wagon Ride with Pumpkin Picking. We will head back to school on the bus at approximately 11:45 and be back in time for our normal lunch break.

This field trip will take place rain or shine, so please dress your child appropriately. Farms are muddy places so boots or sturdy shoes that you don't mind getting dirty are recommended. Student's should bring an extra pair of sneakers in a plastic bag to change into. Also, please send them with an appropriate coat for the weather. Thank you!

Thanks to those who volunteered to help chaperone this field trip. I will be sending home a form for you to read, sign, and return to me. In addition, if you haven't already, please complete the ISD volunteer application ASAP.

Our chaperones will be:

  • Melisa H. 
  • Kumru K.
  • Kim M.
  • Monica P.
  • Harshada P.
  • Sheri P.
  • Weilin Z.

Please note:

  • Per district policy, only students and faculty/staff may ride on school buses to field trips, so parents will meet us at Jubilee Farms.
  • To maximize chaperone focus on our students, no siblings please.
  • Chaperones will be responsible for a small group of students that the teacher will designate.
  • Chaperones will ride the wagon to the pumpkin field with their student group and help students choose and cut their pumpkins off the vines.
  • Additional details to follow as we get closer to the date.

This is a wonderful hands-on learning opportunity that all students absolutely LOVE. Jubilee does an excellent job of teaching our children about the farm in a real-world setting. Please read this list of Helpful Tips for more information.

If you have any questions, please let me know. 

Warmly,

Melissa Bramble
