Welcome students, teachers, and parents. The Flander's field trips are underway. We have had spectacular weather, aside from one rain-out, but the make-up date for next week looks promising. Prior to the trips at Flanders Nature Center, myself, Mrs. Lauren and a Flander's Educator, either Mrs. Amber or Mrs. Lorianne visit the teachers and students participating in this year's program. The schools and districts this year are Carrington School in Waterbury, Judson and Polk School in Watertown, The Sherman School in Sherman, Lincoln School in New Britain and Vogel-Wetmore School in Torrington. We welcome new this year, Sherman and Watertown, plus 2 new classes from Vogel-Wetmore School. During the class visits, we spend a short time providing tips to the teachers and students to ensure they know what to wear and bring the day of their field trip. We also give them a sneak preview into the scientific tools they will be using to investigate nature, and what they will be learning at their time at Flanders Nature Center. Enjoy the pictures.
