Field Trips Twice a Year

1. Why are field trips important for children?
- Field trips provide a unique learning experience for every child, no matter what his or her learning style is. They add fun and excitement that includes hearing, seeing, touching, talking, doing and experiencing real life which aides in making learning fun for life.

2. What are some examples of field trips that may occur?
- Bengston's Pumpkin Patch, Brookfield Zoo, Dupage Children's Museum, and Jump Zone.

3. What is the process or protocol for a child to go on these trips?
- Only children authorized by parents in writing will take part in field trips.

4. Who are the chaperons?
- Staff members and parents that are interested. The proper staff to child ratio will be maintained during the trips. We encourage parents to participate.

Professional School Pictures Twice a Year

1. What is an estimated cost or package?
- This depends on the photography company we utilize, however we do solicit each year to ensure the best quality and cost is passed on to our families.

2. What time of year do they occur? Spring? Winter?
- Both. Our Spring season occurs in April (Graduation pictures are available for children going to Kindergarten) and our Winter season occurs in November (These include holiday/winter themes).
 

Monthly Scholastic Book Club

1. What are the rules of this book club?
- Scholastic Book Orders get sent out once a month to each family. You are under no obligation to purchase. You simply fill out the order form and return it with a check or money order. There is no tax or shipping.

2. How many books?
- There is no set limit.

3. What are the rewards?
- TFIL does receive free books and other classroom items with your support.

Fundraisers Twice a Year

1. What are some of the fundraisers that have been held in the past?
- In the fall we have a Taffy Apple fundraiser. Throughout the year we may have a few smaller fundraisers. For example, in Dec. we have a lottery tree raffle, or we may have a bake sale, or an artwork sale.

2. Why is this important to parents/school?
- Beyond the obvious needs for school items and services, fundraising is important for a variety of other reasons as well. It allows the children or other recipients of the funds (or what they purchase) to feel some pride of ownership.

3. What benefits do they offer to the school and children?
- Hosting these fundraisers help TFIL update equipment and supplies for the classrooms. We give incentives to the top selling families/raffle winners during these fundraisers.
