Ronald Reagan Library & Air Force One Discovery Center – Friday, April 11th

Reagan

6th Grade Class Field Trip to the

Ronald Reagan Library & Air Force One Discovery Center

Friday, April 11, 2014

______________________________________________________________________

Hello Parents,

In less than two weeks we are going to the Reagan Library and the Air Force One Discovery Center

The Discovery Center is a unique educational experience. Students will be facing the challenges and responsibilities of presidential decision making and military planning in the midst of a reenactment of an international crisis. They will be taking a journey back to 1983, to the Presidency of Ronald Reagan and the Grenada Crisis. During this time, the oval office staff, and military commanders worked tirelessly to rescue 800 American medical students.

Students will be given roles of people who faced the crisis. Acting as President, his cabinet and military advisors; students will make vital decisions regarding the Grenada Crisis. They will debate the merits of various diplomatic and military options and share their opinions with the acting President, who will then have to make the final decision.

Parents, be careful not to give away the ending of this crisis in our nation’s history in order to allow the students to make actual decisions. Also, I am sorry to say that parents will not be allowed in the Discovery Center during the first part of our trip. You will, however, be able to explore the library during your student’s experience.

Here are the details about the trip:

  • We will be meeting at 7:45am in the morning and returning around 5:00pm.
  • We are asking each student to dress up professionally to get into character for their roles.
  • The trip cost for each student is $5. Parents cost is $15.
  • We are in need of at least 3 drivers for this trip.
  • Each student and adult will need to bring a sack lunch.
  • Please return the  permission slip your child received in class today by Tuesday, April 8th.

Thank You,

Mr. Thompson
