November 9 Letter - NYC Trip

Wednesday, November 9, 2016


Dear Grade 8 Parents:


As indicated on the November 4, 2016 letter announcing New York as our destination for the grade 8 end-of-year field trip, the purpose of this letter is to provide you with two pieces of information: a draft itinerary and directions to create an account with Jumpstreet, our tour company and make the initial $100 deposit.


On Tuesday afternoon, we made some adjustments to our itinerary, so while Jumpstreet makes those changes, I will instead offer you the highlights of our three-day, two-night trip which departs HMS on Wednesday, June 7 and returns on Friday, June 9:


  • Statue of Liberty
  • Ellis Island
  • Broadway Musical
  • 9/11 Memorial and Museum
  • Metropolitan Museum of Art
  • Central Park
  • Financial District
  • Spirit of New York Dinner and Sightseeing Cruise
  • American Museum of Natural History
  • Accommodations at the Sheraton Edison in Edison, NJ

Finally, while the cost due to Jumpstreet is $709, I want you to be aware of additional expenses for the trip (I recommend that students bring with them $100):

  • lunch on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday,
  • souvenirs,
  • $10 gratuity that we will collect from students and provide to tour leaders and drivers.


Thank you,
