Bronx Zoo Reminders

posted Nov 12, 2018, 12:22 PM by Gina Deppert

Tuesday, November 13 is our class trip to the Bronx Zoo.

A few reminders:

  • Students must wear their gym uniforms.  Keep in mind that we will be outside for much of the day, so please dress for the weather.  

  • Students need to bring lunch.  Lunch should be in a paper bag and disposable containers.

  • Students are responsible for anything they bring.  A drawstring bag or small bag is recommended to carry lunch, camera, etc.

  • Cameras are allowed to take pictures.

  • Phones are to be used for taking pictures or in an emergency situation ONLY.  If a student is found using a phone for any other reason, including social media or games, it will be taken away and held by the teacher.

  • Remember the rules.  All Corpus Christi and Bronx Zoo rules will be enforced.  

  • Students MUST stay with their assigned chaperones at ALL TIMES.  If additional parents join us, they are welcome to stay with the groups.

  • It is up to each chaperone if they have time to visit the gift shop.  Students may bring money, but remember the gift shop is not our main priority.

  • Students will be responsible for completing and handing in the assigned worksheet to Mrs. Deppert. (It will be counted as a quiz grade for the 1st trimester.)

We are looking forward to a fun trip.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask.
