Field trips

 

Teasley families – As you know, all field trips were canceled through the end of the school year.  If you have paid for a field trip, we are able to issue you a refund once we have returned to school.  Some of you may choose to donate your funds to the school.  These funds would be used to support a family in need or to purchase supplies for the classroom or for students.  If you would like to donate your funds, please complete this FIELD TRIP FORM.  If you have questions, please reach out to our bookkeeper, Becky Gibson: Becky.Gibson@cobbk12.org.  Thank you so much.
