NYC prices are in!
Good News!  We have finally received confirmation for the end of the year trip cost.  For students, the total cost for the NYC 2 day trip and picnic is $599.00.  This price is based on four students to a room.  The price for parent chaperones is $669.00 based on two parents.  Prices do range based on how many other adults you would want to share the room with.  Also, special arrangements can be made if you wish to have your own room.  Please let me know if this is the case.  Roommates can be arranged ahead of time.  I only ask that you let me know who you wish to room with.  If not, I randomly select parents to room with other parents based on same sex.
We will be running the deposit a little differently for parent chaperones.  We are requiring a deposit of $200.00 by November 9th and then $100.00 for the next three deposits into January. If you are interested in joining the 8th Grade on their trip to NYC, please contact me via e-mail as soon as possible, so that I may reserve a spot for you.  Please confirm even if you have already expressed interest in chaperoning.
If you are interested in securing a spot as a chaperone or have any questions, please contact me as soon as possible.  I will need to know if you are interested in chaperoning by November 9th.
