Demmitt Elementary students and staff had the opportunity to get a little wild Wednesday, April 27 at the Cincinnati Zoo as the group took a school-wide field trip.
The event has been in the planning stages for several months, with help from community groups to cover the $10,820 cost of the trip. Eight charter buses transported 417 students and 41 staff members to the zoo in the morning.
Students in all grade levels participated in an animal research project, incorporating their experiences and research collected from the zoo. The students will present their information in various forms ranging from informational writing to poster board presentations to parent participation projects.
Thank you to all the parent chaperones, staff and supporters who made this trip a huge success!
