My little girl is in first grade and is going on her first big field trip - to the zoo !
From our town to the zoo is almost 2 hours away and we have gone before ( as a family) and there is always tons and tons of people to where you can hardly walk ....
I really feel uncomfortable about her going unless I can be a chaperone ... I have chaperoned the other field trips along with other parents and it always was nice ...
It doesnt make sense really, for the other smaller field trips ( usually to places in town) alot of parents were asked to go along. The kids were divided into small groups and the parent was responsible for that small group of kids ( usually the groups were about 5-7 kids) .. I think that was nice, having a small group because it is easier to handle them... that was also in small places ( a movie theatre , a pumpkin patch, etc) ...
BUT now they are going to the zoo along with another grade ... There is almost 100 kids and yet the only chaperones that are going are 2 teachers and 2 parents ( that are involved with the school) .... I think that is crazy , how is 4 people going to beable to keep track of that many kids... I called to let them know when I found out about it that I would love to be a chaperone and help out, and they said they already had enough people... I thought that was ok, but then I found out exactly how many were going....
i really dont feel comfortable about letting my 6 year old daughter go with that many kids and that little of supervision , especially since I know how crazy it is up there .... I think I might just let her stay home that day and we can do some other fun activity .... What would you do ?
