Mohican Outdoor School Trip
October 21- 24, 2014
Parent & Student Meeting- September 8, 2014 at 6:00pm in the school's Multipurpose Room!
We understand many of you are waiting for an official cost of the trip.  However, we want to explore & utilize every possible cost reducing avenue available.  Therefore, we are working to finalize the cost of the trip. 

We encourage you to visit Mohican's website for information about the trip and school.
Decision Note- please send back to school or email back to Mrs. Minch!  Thank you

Mohican Outdoor School FORMS
~ print out the forms and send into your child's homeroom teacher by Friday, October 10, 2014
Medicines are collected the morning we leave.  Visit Mrs. Minch at the medicine station
to turn in necessary medications.   (You are welcome to send the forms
in early if you would like, but please bring medicine the morning of the trip.)
Your child's doctor is required to sign the any prescription.
Mohican Store 
Mohican does have a store the students can purchase snacks and mementos.  Each student will have their own checking account through the Mohican School Bank.  Mrs. Kirby will be teaching the kiddos how to use their checking accounts before the trip.   
The money is due before Friday, October 10, 2014.  You may use Pay Pal (send in a receipt to the teacher), send in cash, or check (make it out to Hickory Ridge Elementary).
 The student's cash is no good at the store, so please do not pack any cash in the luggage.
 Please review the attached store list and discuss with your child the expectations you have for their spending. 
Example:  I expect you to buy a t-shirt, but also a souvenir for your brother and sister.
