trip around georgia

Dear Eighth Grade Parents and Students,

One of the most memorable experiences of a student’s eighth grade year at Locust Grove Middle School is the Trip Around Georgia. It is a three-day, two-night tour that will take our students across Georgia to visit and study some of our state’s most famous sites. Our travels will take us to places including Andersonville, St. Simons, and Savannah! Our trip will end in a day at Wild Adventures in Valdosta! Then, we come back home to LGMS on Friday night.

This year’s trip will be Wednesday, March 30- Friday, April 1 and will cost $385.00. This price includes transportation on luxury charter busses, hotel rooms, ALL meals, three t-shirts to be worn on the trip, nighttime security, and admission to ALL sites and events. The cost can be broken into three payments as follows:

1st payment $125.00 Due no later than Friday, October 30, 2015

2nd payment $130.00 Due no later than Friday, January 22, 2015

3rd payment $130.00 Due no later than Friday, March 5, 2015

**No refunds possible.**

Please note: Students who are assigned to ISS two times or more/or who receive one assignment to OSS between the dates of November 1 and April 1 will NOT be allowed to attend the trip. Additionally, no refunds will be made. (Any questions or concerns about this policy should be directed to Mr. Townsend. Final decisions will ultimately be made at his discretion.) Additionally, all students who attend the trip must be passing a minimum of three academic classes by April 1, 2015, or they will not be allowed to attend the trip.

If you would like to go with us this year, return this letter, along with your first payment of $125 to Ms. Zabala in the front office. All checks should be made payable to Locust Grove Middle School. Future payments should also be made out to Locust Grove Middle School and given to Ms. Zabala who will receipt it.

If you would like to chaperone this trip, we would love to have you. The cost is the same for parents as for students, and you would be responsible for a small group of students throughout the trip.

food for fines

If your student owes any money to the media center (not counting lost books), he or she can pay of the debt by simply bringing in canned goods! Until Christmas break, students have the opportunity to use any non- perishable items as a way to get rid of their library fine. Each item counts towards 50 cents of their fine.
