Mission Information
Field Trip
Next Monday, December 4th, we will be going on our field trip to Mission San Juan Capistrano. We will gather at school at 7:45 and drive to the Solana Beach train station. We will take the 9:05 train to San Juan Capistrano. In the past some parents wanted to meet AT the train station. Please let me know if you are planning on that so we don’t wait at school for you. If you are planning on meeting us there, please try to be there by 8:30 or so. Since we have a large group they will need us to line up on the platform prior and the elevator or journey down can take a bit.
Students should wear jeans and their Stella Maris Academy polos and sweatshirts. If there is rain, they will need a rain jacket. Please pack a sack lunch for the day with snacks for the train as well. Some students have enjoyed bringing card games and things for the train trip. Please no cell phones.
We will be returning on a later train, the 1:49 train. This train will arrive in Solana Beach at 2:42 and then we will make our trip back to school from there.
Students were given permission slips this morning. Please sign and return these by Thursday. I have attached one to this email as well.
Mission Reports
Prior to break your child received their mission report packet. In the packet were suggested art project ideas. Please review this packet with your child and decide on an art project together. Mission art projects are due Wednesday, December 13th.
Please see email for assigned missions and mission packet.
Christmas Play
About half the class has a speaking part in the play and will be at practice on Wednesday mornings. The whole class is learning 4 songs. The costumes this year will be the same as last year, shepherd attire or dressed as people living during the time of Christ’s birth. If your child has a speaking part or other part, please check with them as to what they should wear or contact Ms. Misleh.
The dress rehearsal for the play will be at 1 pm on December 14th. The evening performance will be at 6 the same night.
