Mt. Vesuvius, Pompeii & Herculaneum

2011 Field Trip Information for Families

 

 

 

SPQR: Rome Wasn’t Built in a Day

 

Our unit of inquiry is leading the 5th grade to Mt. Vesuvius, Pompeii and Herculaneum for a two night/three day field trip from Monday, April 4 to Friday, April 6.

 

ACCOMMODATIONS:

We will stay at the 4 star Hotel Forum in Pompeii. Tel. +39 081 850 1170

All meals in Pompeii will be at the hotel.

Students will be in rooms with classmates (2-4, boys/girls separated) to a room.

 

TRANSPORT:

We will be travelling by a private coach. The bus will be at our disposal for the entire stay.

 

CHAPERONES:

Three Ambrit teachers will accompany the trip.

 

 

A permission slip and check list were sent home with students on Friday, March 11. The permission slip should be returned by Friday, March 18. The checklist should be given to Mr. Guarnieri on the Wednesday morning of the trip.

 

Students may choose to bring a camera, but are not allowed to bring any other type of electronic devices (No cell phones, MP3 players, Nintendo, etc.)

We will post to our class Wiki each evening so you can see and read about what we are doing (I will send instructions for this before the departure). Children will not be permitted to call home during the trip. In case of an emergency you can reach Mr. Guarnieri throughout the trip on his cell phone (366-520-4553) or one of the other chaperones listed above.
