The kindergartners went to the Bronx Zoo in June. They studied zoo animals and animal life. In June they also went to the Children’s Museum. Brian N. in Mrs. Ghingo’s class says before the trip, "I can’t wait to go on the trip! It should be so much fun!" Mrs. Johnson says, "The students particularly enjoy the petting zoo, for they can hand feed the animals.”

The first graders went to the Hofstra Playhouse to see a production of Charlotte’s Web. The field trip happened in May. "The children learned about friendship. The parts they liked the best were the bus ride and the play," says Mrs. Smith before the trip. “This is also the first time we are seeing this play.”

Tom B. of Mrs. Kanterman’s class says before the trip, “ I am really looking forward to the trip. It will be funny!”

Tommy B. in Mrs. Haworth’s class says before the trip, “I can’t wait to go to Green Meadows Farm, and see all the animals! I had a great time when I went in first grade, and I bet I will have fun this time!”
