PARENT MEETINGS TONIGHT
As you may know, we carried a group of students to NYC last Spring. It was an amazing trip! We will have our first meeting for those interested on Monday, October 29th at 5:30 pm. Cost for this trip will be around $900-$1000. This includes travel, lodging, some food, and almost all of the activities. The tour company takes care of all payments and a payment plan can be set up to help spread out expenses. If you are interested in learning more, please plan to attend. This will only be for 7th and 8th grade students. It is a 5-day trip set for early May.
Our 6th graders will have a new opportunity this Spring. It is a 3 night, 4 day trip to the YMCA Hargis Retreat in Chelsea, Alabama. It is a program provided by Project American Life. I was able to attend one night of this event a few weeks ago and it was honestly one of the best experiences I have ever attended. I can't wait for this opportunity. This program is only available for 6th graders. The cost will be approximately $300. This will include all lodging and meals. We will meet at 6:00 pm on October 29th to discuss this trip. Our kids are going to love this trip! We are planning to attend the week of April 14th. I have provided a link below to learn more about this opportunity.
