End of Year: 8th grade end of the year trip to Mt. Olympus is set for Tuesday May 31st from 8:15-5:30. Students will need to pay $20, and lunch is included. Students can bring technology, but they are responsible for it throughout the day. This trip is a huge hit whether student are swimming, riding roller coasters, or playing games. Students go off together during the day, and just meet up with staff at lunch time and at the end of the day. We look forward to seeing students outside the classroom in this fun environment! If students received a letter stating they were unable to attend, they can still go before a panel (here at school) and argue their case as to why they should get to go. The panel will make the final decision.
