Math Museum field trip updated info.

Saturday,  December 1

As you know, the Astronauts have a field trip to the Math Museum in NYC coming up on Saturday. This trip is part of the YA curriculum and all Astronauts are expected to attend. Below is the plan for the day.
· All Astronauts should wear their hoodies 
· Everyone needs to bring a packed lunch and refillable water bottle (it’s a good idea for Astronauts to bring a string backpack so they don’t have to carry around a heavy backpack all day)
· Dress warmly/in layers (and consider bringing an umbrella) – we plan to be walking around outside after the museum. 
· We recommend that the Astronauts bring some spending money for hot chocolate at the Winter Village
· YA is paying half of the chaperone cost 
Please be at the SoNo train station by 8:45am because all chaperones will need to buy several tickets at the station before we get on the train. Each chaperone will need to buy the following at the ticket machine or app (I will be there to help):
· Roundtrip off-peak ticket to Grand Central Terminal ($25)
· Roundtrip off-peak family ticket to GCT for each kid in their chaperone group ($2 x either 2 or 3 kids; see chaperone groups below)
· MetroCard ($5.50) – for chaperone only; kids will travel free on subway
Agenda:
· 8:45am: meet at SoNo train station southbound side; buy tickets
· 9:13am: depart SoNo, arrive Grand Central 10:20am
