Parent/Guardian Signature Main Office/Obligations
On Wednesday, April 30, 2008, Mr. May's Earth Science classes will be attending a field
trip. On this trip we will be going to see a star show at the Strasenburgh Planetarium at the
Rochester Museum and Science Center. The show is designed specifically for our
curriculum. Before the planetarium, we will travel to Mt. Hope Cemetery, which at one
time also served as a park. We will view unique glacial features, study weathering of
various rock types (tombstones) and learn about many famous people in our local history.
We will also view the beautifully landscaped features of New York State, carved by ice
and water, from the comfort of our glorious yellow buses. We will also dine at Market
Place Mall Food Court. Yummy! We will leave at 8:10 and return by 2:30.
WE NEED PARENTS. Parents will not be charged. This show would cost the public
$7.00 and Mr. May's cemetery tour is priceless.
Students must pay $5.00 each for planetarium admission and either bring a lunch or
money for lunch.
STUDENTS MAY NOT WEAR: torn jeans, concert T-shirts or clothing with any
messages on it; brand names are ok as long as they in no way can be thought to
reference sex, violence, alcohol, drugs or gang activities. We like Warsaw to be
well represented in the public and unfortunately appearance counts.
No gum, candy, or food of any kind is allowed in the planetarium.
No backpacks, stereos or video games are allowed in the planetarium. They must be
left on the bus at your own risk.
Students not attending will be given an alternative project to work on while they are
at school. The trip will count as two lab grades.
Students will be on their best behavior, following all of Mr. May's and school rules.
They will also obey all chaperones whether they are school personnel or not.
If you wish to chaperone, please write your e-mail address or phone number and time to
