On Wednesday, July 25, 2018, Primary children will visit the Princeton Art Museum. The purpose of the trip is three-fold: to expose the children to real art, to teach them art museum etiquette, and to inspire their creativity.

We will not be visiting the gift shop. Please do not send money with your child. The trip will take place rain or shine. If it is raining, the children will need raincoats; please do not bring umbrellas.
What to bring/wear:
- Wear comfortable walking shoes (no flip flops)
- Wear raincoats as needed (no umbrellas)
Please submit your permission by Monday, July 23rd.
The Lower Elementary children had a special experience when Army Captain John Tucci, father of Lower Elementary student Alexa, had a flag flown over the American embassy in Baghdad, Iraq in honor of the class. Captain Tucci, who runs language programs to help with the post-war rebuilding of Iraq, sent the children the flag along with a certificate after it was flown above the embassy.
The children had the opportunity to Skype with Captain Tucci to thank him. They wore red, white, and blue for the occasion, and sang him the song, Fifty Nifty United States. They also had the opportunity to ask him questions about what Iraq is like. The flag and certificate will be on display at school.
