The “Unofficial” Third Grade Campout

Third Grade Families: Mark your calendars for April 8-10, 2016, for our “unofficial” campout at Dinosaur Valley State Park!

For more than 20 years, Travis Elementary had an official class trip to Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose, Texas, (near Waco). Although this trip is no longer school-sponsored, every year a group of parents organizes to continue this tradition with third grade. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, as we have access to amazing dinosaur and fossil sites, many of which are not available to the public.

We have 21 campsites reserved and can take about 42 third grade families. For those less interested in camping, there also are several hotels in nearby historic Glen Rose, but book early!
To sign up, go to: Organizers for this event are Kelli Fereday and Emily Guyre.

Watch for handouts in your third grader’s folder in the next week.
