Senior Trip to New York City

September 24, 2018

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Payments for the trip are due next Monday, October 1st.

The cost of the trip, for quad occupancy, is $699.00 per person. Single, double, and triple occupancy are also available at a higher rate.

Travel insurance is available for those who wish to purchase it, but it is not required. There is also a $15.00 per person tip that we will collect with the last payment for the driver and our tour guide.

To help offset the cost of the trip, we are offering a Scratch Card Fundraiser. The first 22 families that hand in their registration form(s) and deposit(s) to me will get one card for free. After that, each card costs $10.00. They need to be ordered, so I will need to know how many you would like as soon as possible. Scratch cards will earn you a minimum of $150.00 off your trip. If you have any ideas for additional fundraisers, please let me know.

If you need financial assistance, a scholarship MAY be available for you. Please contact me for more information. I can be reached by emailing Robyn.Hall@myeagles.org.

Thank you,

Robyn Hall
