Dear HMS 8th Grade Families:
We are excited to announce that our 8th graders will be going to Washington, D.C. this year, continuing the long Middle School tradition of a class trip as an educational highlight of students’ middle school experience. This optional trip is a once in a lifetime experience for your 8th grader.
The trip will take place November 8-10.
The cost of this year’s trip is $475 which includes two night accommodations as quad occupancy, two breakfasts, two lunches and three dinners. The cost also includes travel managers and guides as well as transportation aboard a deluxe passenger motor coach. In addition it covers cost of admission to all sightseeing and museums listed on the itinerary.
Paying for the trip will require parents to set up an online account with our trip partner/provider, Discovery Tours. Please visit their website www.tourwithdiscovery.com
or contact by phone at 1-800-590-2669.
No money should be brought to school; all payments should be directed through Discovery Tours. Trip cost can be paid upfront in full or in installments. Please find the itinerary with details of the trip and sign up on the website. Specific details about room and bus assignments will be communicated to students and parents closer to the trip after all payments and paperwork have been turned in. If you have specific questions about the trip please contact either Sharae Durrah (Monticello) email@example.com or Dani Copeland (Roxboro) at firstname.lastname@example.org
