The planning for the 2021 - 2022 Washington D.C. trip has begun! It is our hope that this experience will significantly add to our students’ appreciation of history, heritage, government and diversity.  The 8th graders will be traveling to Washington D.C. Tuesday, May 10 - Friday, May 13, 2022.  The trip cost of $600.00 will be made directly to Martin School Travel.  Payments cannot be made until after the first parent meeting in September, 2021 in order to gain greater understanding of payment schedule and process as well as fundraising opportunities. 
From now until May 10, 2022 you will find announcements and payment schedules for the upcoming D.C. field trip at this site. I will be posting the date of our first parent information meeting in the near future!!   You are strongly encouraged to attend this meeting if you intend to send your student to Washington D.C.!!! There are many important details that must be completed before we leave.  For example:  If you do not turn in a permission slip, you are not on the trip!!!  Stay informed and up to date by checking this site weekly.  Scroll down to find all future announcements.  Thanks.
DC Trip Coordinator
Payment Schedule: Payments will be made online at a site provided by Martin School Travel.  The site will be given to each student by their Social Studies Teacher on the day they turn in their signed permission slip!!

Important Updates!!

March 28, 2022:  Parents.....We will have a final parent information meeting prior to our departure for the 8th grade trip to Washington D.C. in the middle school cafeteria on Monday, April 11, 2022 at 7:30 P.M.  Please plan to attend as many important topics will be discussed.  Someone representing each student attending the trip should be present!!!

February 11, 2022:  Parents.....The final payment for this year's trip to Washington D.C. of January 21 has come and gone. Many people turned in permission slips, but did not register your student on the We Travel webpage to make your payments to Martin Travel.  Unfortunately, we can no longer add any addtional students to this year's trip.  Parents who have registered their students, please go ahead and finish out any balance you may have unpaid towards the trip.  If you are waiting for fundraising profits let me assure you, those payments are being processed and will be credited to your student's account shortly.  

In addtion, be aware that the bus and room assignment process has begun.  Students were informed today that they will be choosing their bus partner starting on Monday.  Have some conversation with your child about smart decision making.  

January 4, 2022:  Parents, you hopefully noticed your students started a new fundraiser on Monday, December 20, 2021, prior to winter break.  The orders and money for orders are due on Monday, January 10, 2022.  While I hope to be able to put together the profit margins for each student pretty quickly, I can't guarantee it unless all orders are turned in on time and all money is turned in at the same time.  Should things be held up, it would delay me from identifying each students profit prior to the final payment date of January 19th.  If you intend to use fundraiser money to make your final payments... please wait until you know what your final payment would be. Do not worry if your payment is delayed as a result!!  You will not be dropped from the trip and you will not be charged any late fees!!  Thanks and feel free to email me with any questions at [email protected].

December 14, 2021:  Parents, the candles have arrived a day earlier than expected!!  I will get the candles sorted and organized today.  Tomorrow I will send home any orders with students that can be easily carried on the bus.  Large orders will need to picked up after school.  I will be in the building tomorrow, Wednesday, December 15 until 7:30 PM. Just enter the building from the bus parking lot entrance and look for  me in the gymnasium.

December 13, 2021:  Parents I have received notification that our candle orders from Glow Scented Candles will be delivered to the school sometime on Wednesday, December 15.  If they arrive early enough in the day I will have the students contact you to arrange pick up that day.  If they get to school too late in the day, I will sort them and have them ready to be sent home or picked up at the school on Thursday, December 16.  Thank you for your patience.

October 5, 2021:  Parents today students were offered the opportunity to participate in our first fundraising event for the Washington D.C. trip.  We are selling Glow Scented Candles.  Please view the attached flyer for all details concerning the fundraiser.  If you wish for your son or daughter to participate, please have them pick up the needed paperwork from their social studies teacher.
