Grade 5 & 6 Trip Permission Form

GRADE 5 & 6 FIELD TRIP: NOVEMBER 3, 2019

TENEMENT MUSEUM and LOWER EAST SIDE

Dear Parents,

Our 5th & 6th graders have an exciting trip ahead! First they will enjoy an interactive tour with the museum educators at the Tenement Museum, followed by a guided tour of the Lower East Side. The Tenement Museum enables students to learn about the challenges of 19th century Jewish immigrants to the Lower East Side.  For the Lower East Side excursion, we will enjoy working with Jeff Altman, a wonderful, experienced guide who is terrific with the children. Here is the information you need to know:

1. Please drop off your child a bit early, at 8:30am. No books are needed. Students will have a brief orientation and will board the bus at 8:45.

2. Our program at the Tenement Museum is from 10:00-11:30. The Tenement Museum is located at 108 Orchard St., NYC.

3. The children will eat lunch at a nearby restaurant. The school will pay for pizza and a drink for each child’s lunch. We will be in touch with you before the trip about alternative menu items for children with allergies.

4. From 12:15-1:45 the children will tour the Lower East Side to learn about its Jewish history. We will return to the temple by 2:30, which is the correct time to be at the temple to pick up your child. The tour will include the option to buy a pickle, a bialy bagel and a sweet treat.

5. The fee for this trip is $30.00, payable to Temple Sinai, and covers the museum fee, tour guide and a small percentage of the   transportation costs. Please provide your child with pocket money (suggestion: $6.00) to purchase traditional snacks from the pickle man and from the bialy bagel man!

Please complete the permission form below and your account will be billed $30.

We do expect each 5th & 6th grader to attend this trip. It is a scheduled part of the year’s curriculum. We appreciate your support of our programming. If you have any questions or would like to chaperone, please give us a call or email michal@templesinainj.org (We request our chaperones to also pay $30 for this trip. Thank you.)

My child, listed above, has permission to travel to the Tenement Museum and tour the Lower East Side in New York City with Temple Sinai Religious School on Sunday, November 3, 2019.  I will bring my child to the temple at 8:30am and will pick my child up at 2:30pm.
