DC/Philadelphia trip meeting

The trip meeting for the upcoming DC/Philadelphia trip will be held Wednesday, 2/13 at 6PM.

Attendance at this meeting is required of every student and chaperone traveling with us.

Each student will also need a parent/guardian present to fill out and sign paperwork.  Notaries will be on hand so adults should bring a photo ID.

We will discuss our expectations of students, trip rules, packing, the itinerary, what we'll do if the shutdown begins again, and address any other concerns.

We apologize for scheduling a Wednesday meeting but it was unavoidable.

Deadline extended to sign up for trip

Published: 2018-12-11 14:02:04 by jsmith

Y'all are making this hard for us!  We had quite a few new folks sign up for the trip last week.  Unfortunately it wasn't enough to make that 2nd bus a for sure thing.  It WAS enough people to make figuring out who gets cut a really tough decision. 

Here's what we're going to do: the deadline to sign up for the trip has been extended to Friday, 12/14.  You need to turn in $400 (two $200 payments have passed) and your signed contract by Friday, 12/14 to reserve your spot.

Parents, we're still looking to add a chaperone or two to the list so if you've worked with the kids before please feel free to sign up as well!
