Dear Parents or Guardian: We are pleased to announce that courtesy of the generosity of the CFAE and the Cumberland PTO, we have planned a field trip for the 5th Graders. We are planning to go to the Shedd Aquarium and Rock-N-Roll McDonalds on Tuesday, May 8, 2012. The grant from the CFAE will cover the cost of the bus, and the admission to the special jellies exhibit. Your child only needs to bring enough money to purchase lunch at McDonalds. Please note that we will not have time to shop for any souvenirs on this academic field trip. If students are interested in bringing a camera (including cell phone cameras), be advised that they will be responsible for taking care of it. Due to the fact that we need to be at the Shedd Aquarium at 10:00 a.m., we are planning to leave Cumberland School at 8:30 a.m. Students who ride the bus will have to make other arrangements to come to school on this day. We realize that this might pose an inconvenience to some families, however it cannot be avoided. We need to be at the Shedd Aquarium by 10:00 a.m. in order to secure free general admission. We will return to school at 3:30, our normal dismissal time. Several Cumberland staff members will be accompanying us on this trip; however, if you are interested in chaperoning, please write your name on the bottom of the permission slip. We will add your name into a raffle drawing. Thank you for your cooperation. We are looking forward to enjoying this wonderful opportunity with the children. Very sincerely yours, Mrs. Wasserman and Miss Zachwieja
