Sea Life Orlando Field Trip

We are working on re-scheduling our field trip to Sea Life Orlando. It will probably be towards the end of May. We will send home permission slips as soon as we reserve the tour and buses. You do not need to pay again; however, if you did not pay for your child to attend the trip originally, you can sign them up now. The cost is $25. We appreciate your patience.
