Fall Field Trip Registration is open for all OUSD Educators!
We have eight Thursday morning (10am-12:30pm) Storytelling and Bookmaking Field Trip Slots for OUSD Classrooms. Each Field Trip is FREE and will guide students in a collaborative storytelling adventure, teaching narrative along the way. Each writer will finish their own "very original" ending and will leave the writing center an author with their very own, bureaucratically approved and professionally illustrated, book. Read more about our field trips here, then register your classroom here. Classrooms are placed on a first come first served bases.
