Dear Parents and Guardians,
The Renaissance community has planned a field trip for Wednesday, April 15th. We will be going to Petra Cliffs indoor climbing center in Burlington to learn about climbing and participate in team building activities. The staff at Petra Cliffs will provide instruction on safe climbing practices. All students will be given the opportunity to try climbing if they choose. As part of our technology and engineering curriculum, we will also tour two local factories. Engineers at Burton, will demonstrate how they design, create, and test prototypes of snowboards and bindings. Our tour will include history of the company and manufacturing processes. Lastly, we will visit the Lake Champlain Chocolate Factory. Students will view the production process of Lake Champlain Chocolates.
In order for students to participate at Petra Cliffs, you must sign and return the attached release form. Students must also have sneakers and comfortable clothing. Students will need to bring a non-glass water bottle.
Please fill out the permission slip sent home with your child.
