PFFS-U 6th Grade Expedition

September 2, 2016

Picture_Rock_Pass_Petroglyphs_01This Friday is our second sixth grade expedition. We will be journeying northwest to the edge of Saguaro National Park to view the petroglyph site at Picture Rocks pass. The 6/7 grade is continuing in their studies of early humans and beginning to focus more on local, Native American civilizations and we are so lucky to have rock art sites in such close vicinity. Visiting the art left here millennia ago will help give students a tangible, visual example of what they are learning in class, as well as ideas for what they will be creating in upcoming interdisciplinary projects.
It is supposed to be in the mid-90s on Friday. We will do our best to get out to the sites quickly and not spend too much time there, but please send your young one with sun protection and two bottles of water. They should also have a non-microwaveable lunch, snacks, and wear good walking shoes.
We are still in need of drivers. Please let Ariane know if you are able to help. We will be leaving at 9:00 AM and back by 12:30 PM. It is about 20 minutes away. If you are able to help, please call or email me!
