NOTE: I have plenty of parents signed up for chaperones and will send a letter listing the 9 parents who will be assisting the younger students on their space mission as well as a list of the 9 parents for the older space mission. I am finding out this week whether or not the classroom lesson room and mission control rooms are open to our other chaperones during the time of the space missions. Stay tuned. :-)
