FLOW Permission Slip and Information Packet

Dear families,

on the second day of school, all 8th graders will receive a FLOW permission slip.  This is in addition to the health form from Chewonki.  Both of these items must be completed and returned in order for your student to participate in FLOW.  The packet has a brief overview of  FLOW as well as some resources to help you prepare for the trip.  Just in case your packet gets lost, you can find it right here on the FLOW blog page.  

We are all looking forward to seeing your smiling faces Tuesday morning!

FLOW Schedule

I am excited to report that we are less than a month away from the first session of the FLOW Expedition!  The first groups will head out for their week on the water on September 15th.  While all the specific student groups have yet to be finalized, I thought it would be helpful to have general information about when each of the houses would be out on course.

BMS Red House:  September 15-19 and September 22-26

WCS:  September 22-26 and September 29-October 3

BMS Green House:  September 29-October 3 and October 6-10

Students will come to school on the Monday morning of their trip with their clothing and sleeping bags packed.  These can be carried in a duffel bag or even a plastic trash bag.  The bus will leave at 10:00 am  from BMS, and 10:15 from WCS, arriving at Chewonki at 10:30.  On Friday, at the end of the trip, students will return to WCS by 1:15 and to BMS by 1:30.

Remember to to look at the packing list and begin thinking about putting together the clothing you'll need.  We have been working hard for over a year to get things prepared for you, but we will need you to take on the responsibility for your own personal gear.  Don't hesitate to get in touch with me at if you have any questions or concerns.
