After three incredibly lucky days with the weather, we are back from the Marin Headlands. Despite forecasts of up to a 90% chance of rain, we somehow avoided all but a few sprinkles, and all the heavier rain came while we were sleeping. The students had an amazing time hiking, learning, playing, doing experiments, and spending time with each other in a beautiful natural setting.
A couple requests as you are unpacking:
- Please return any unused ponchos. We would like to save them for next year if possible.
- Please send dvd or cd copies of any digital pictures. We would like to put together a few projects and the more media we can gather, the better. I will send a note about this home too. Alternatively, you could have your child bring the camera to school with the full memory card. I can hold on to the camera in the morning and keep it safe, use a memory card reader to pull off the pictures, and return the camera at the end of the day.
Thanks again to all the parents for helping to make the trip possible. Also, thanks to the kids for such a wonderful few days together.
