'England 2019' for Juniors and Parents . Meeting Thursday

Note: the inaugural 'England' trip was taken in 2017. Photos of that trip can be found here (and above) and may help influence your decision to attend.

Mr. Flink and Mrs. Chang will hold a meeting for all junior students and their parents who are interested in 'England 2019' when they will visit Ireland, Scotland, and England during August of 2019 (during IHSA hands-off week). Everything has been finalized, and they are excited to see everyone.

Even if you are unsure as to whether or not you (or your student) will be traveling, please attend and listen to the presentation so that you have more accurate information by which to make a decision. If you are unable to attend but interested, please email Mr. Flink at
