Sign up for the East Coast Tour!

Interested?

Attend an informational meeting:

Current 6th and 7th Graders: I will be holding an informational meeting through Zoom on May 11, 2021. Any parents interested in sending their child on the East Coast Tour in May of their 8th grade year should attend! The meeting will be from 6:30-7:45pm.

It is an informational meeting only; many topics will be covered, including:

date and cost of the trip/payment information/how to sign up/who are the chaperones/safety issues/hotel information/cities and sites we'll visit/questions and answers/and more!

Please download the following flyer:

About the trip:

- The cost of the Trip is approx $3000.00 (for the 2022 Trip).

- The Trip is in late May of your 8th grade year. You will miss five days of school. This is AFTER State testing, so don't worry about that. We will depart on a Saturday afternoon and return on a late Saturday night.

- Sign up as soon as you can, because the top 47 are guaranteed a spot on the Trip. If you register after the top 47 spots have been filled, you will be placed on a Waiting List.

- I can take a maximum of 94 students (2 busses with 47 per bus).

- We will visit four major cities, and various other towns.

- Minimum 2.0 GPA required and no F grades. Student behavioral record will be assessed by Mr. Cortez and Mr. Hasson.

- Get your friends to sign up and perhaps they'll be your roommates in the hotels!

(If your cell phone doesn't allow you to send messages to short numbers like 81010, then you need to either download the Remind app or download a different messaging app.)

I strongly recommend this experience for all students. It is strategically organized, safe, and a great time for students to bond. But most importantly, it is LIFE-CHANGING. Your child will have the opportunity to come face-to-face with many of the historic sites and topics that are studied throughout the course of middle and high school.
