To the Editor:
We would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to the staff of the New Milford Police Department, Water Witch Hose Company #2, the New Milford Hospital and the New Milford Public Library for allowing our second-graders to visit as part of our recent field trip to learn about some of the important people and places in our community.
Our day was filled with fun and wonderful information. We are so grateful to everyone for making our trip such a success.
Thank you also to our second-graders for showing such good character throughout the trip. You have demonstrated behavior of which we can all be proud.
In addition to the places we traveled to on our field trip, the teachers would like to express our gratitude to the guests who visited our school from the New Milford Senior Center this spring.
The children truly enjoyed hearing about how different life was years ago. What a great experience.
We are so very fortunate to teach in a community that supports learning both inside and outside the walls of the classroom.
