“A Christmas Carol” at Hartford Stage

December 5, 2016

Dear Parents/Guardians,

This letter is to remind you of our field trip scheduled for Wednesday, December 7th. We will be attending Hartford Stage’s production of “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens. We will be leaving Griswold Middle School at 9:30 a.m. and returning at approximately 1:00 p.m.

The school cafeteria will be closed when we return, and therefore students must bring a bagged lunch and drink. Please be aware that students will not be able to purchase any food or drink items from the cafeteria.

We would also like to remind parents and students that we will be representing GMS and Rocky Hill at this function and will expect that students dress and behave appropriately. Gum and/or candy of any kind is unacceptable on this field trip. Also, students may not bring any electronic equipment, cameras, money, or other valuable items.

Therefore, please make sure your child is prepared for Wednesday’s trip as follows:

  1. A bagged lunch and drink (no glass bottles or candy)
  2. Appropriate dress
  3. No electronic equipment, cameras, or other valuable items

The sixth grade teachers are looking forward to this exciting trip and are anticipating a wonderful experience for all!

Thank you,

Sixth Grade Teachers
