Our principal here at St. Francis High School of Learning, Arnold G. Putnam, suggested I send this letter asking for field trip permission by the School Board.
The students in my ninth grade class have taken our Introduction to Architecture studies quite seriously. I mentioned one of my favorite places to visit in the city, the Queens Museum, which contains a complete replica of New York City’s architectural design beneath a glass floor. They were both intrigued at the possibility of not only viewing the entire city block by block, but excited about finding their individual homes. After one of my students suggested we should go there, I innocently blurted I would look into it. LOL.
So after speaking with Mr. Putnam, I am sending this field trip permission letter to your attention. I have included various booklets about the museum and its exhibits. I think it would be an extremely proactive experience for the students. The museum has exceptional rates for groups and students. I have already spoken with the museum director who has offered to give us an additional 10 percent off if I can get approval from the School District within the next week.
If you need any other information, please feel free to contact me at St. Francis by phone (212.888.5555) or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
