NYC Trip Meeting – Thursday – 2/6 @ 6:00 PM

Dear Parents,

I hope you all are enjoying you snow day!

As the NYC trip approaches, we would like to update you on a few items concerning the trip. Next Thursday, February 6, we would like all parents and students attending the trip join us for a brief meeting at 6:00 PM in the auditorium. At the meeting we would like to accomplish the following items:

  •     Collect second deposit from all NYC trip participants

  •     Assign Hotel Rooms

  •     Discuss future fundraising opportunities

Please let us know if you are unable to make this date. We will need to know whom your child (or chaperone) would like to room with.

Thank you for your time!
