Grade 4 Drumheller Trip

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Our grade four class field trip to the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller is coming soon! We will be traveling to Drumheller on Tuesday, June 21, and returning to Calmar on Wednesday, June 22. We need to be in Drumheller by 12:30 pm. I would like to have everything and everyone loaded on the bus and ready to leave by about 8:30 am on the Tuesday morning. We will travel on a yellow school bus. There will be room for our parent chaperones to travel on the bus with us, but parents are welcome to take their own vehicles if they wish. ***Students will need a bag lunch to be eaten while we are traveling. I have included a packing list of items that students and chaperones will need to bring with them. Please note that one of our activities is an hour of swimming at the Drumheller Aquaplex so please remember to bring your swimsuit and a towel as well. I’ve also included a copy of the schedule for our Edutour. It’s going to be a very exciting and busy two days! You’ll notice that the schedule includes 30 minutes of time in the gift shop. If your child would like to purchase something from the gift shop, please ensure that they have their money in a secure place. You will find two copies of the Blackgold Regional Schools Informed Consent Field Trip form enclosed with this package. Please fill in and sign the bottom portion of the one marked “return to school” and send it back by Wednesday, June 8. The cost of the field trip is $65.00 per person (including adult chaperones). This amount covers all of the activities at the museum, as well as swimming, supper and snacks. Payments may be made online and are due by Wednesday, June 8, as well, please. If you have any questions, please call me at school at 780­985­2228 or by email

Mrs. Biddell
