Enrollment for 2018/2019:
8th Grade Backpacking Trip Information Night - January 18, 2018, 6 PM at the Upper School
Parents and 8th graders, along with interested 7th grade parents and students, are invited and encouraged to attend an informational session presented by Ironwood Tree Experience (ITE). ITE facilitates our backpacking trip each year. At this informational meeting you will have the opportunity to meet ITE staff, learn about the location where we will be backpacking, see equipment that your student will use and ask any questions you may have. If there is space available, some 7th graders may be able to participate. 7th grade participants will be selected based on available space and strong work habits.
Wright Flight Program Reminder:

The club will meet on Mondays after school in Jana’s classroom.
The cost of the program is $40 per student, if this is a hardship for anyone, there are scholarships available, please speak with Joy.
Feed My Starving Children Field Trip 1st - 8th Grade, January 25th
Use this form to grant permission for your child(ren) in grades 1-8 to attend the FMSC field trip. On Jan. 25, 2018, students will travel by bus to Pantano Christian Church to pack meals for hungry children around the world. The bus will leave at about 8:45 and return to campus at about 12:30. Students will eat a pizza lunch at the church campus after packing meals. This is a non-denominational, secular service trip. Unfortunately, kindergarten students are not invited to attend the trip this year due to age restrictions.
