Dear Grade 8 Parents,
We hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving. This email is a follow-up to the one sent on November 9 regarding our end-of-year grade 8 field trip to New York City.
Please be aware that a $100 deposit is due by the end of the day on Thursday, December 1. The email sent on November 9 has the details for registering you and your child and submitting payment. Please let us know if you need assistance.
During Tuesday morning’s homeroom, students will receive a Behavior Contract that must be signed by your child, a parent and then returned to homeroom on or before Friday, December 2. This contract informs students and parents that our expectations on field trips are the same as the ones in school, and as such, students behavior in school is suggestive as to how they will behave outside of it. It is certainly our hope and expectation that all students will be able to attend this field trip for its duration, however, students who fail to meet our expectations during school will not be permitted to attend our grade 8 field trip. In addition, should misbehavior occur while on our field trip, we will ask a parent to come to New York to pick up your child.
Finally, as we continue to send documents and materials to you, they are being maintained on our school website, for your reference, under Parents > Grade/Team Websites > Grade 8 > New York City.
