Attention 4th Grade Parents,
Now is the time to start thinking about and planning for the 5th Grade trip to Washington DC! Every year we take a group of 5th graders to Washington DC and surrounding areas in June following the end of school. The trip is coordinated through School Tours of America. Next year our trip will be June 3 to June 7, 2017. Here are some of the highlighted stops:
• Colonial Williamsburg, VA
• Jamestown, VA
• Charlottesville, VA – Monticello Tour
• Washington DC: Capitol Hill, Smithsonian, Arlington National Cemetery, Mount Vernon, various memorials and landmarks, and more!
Registration is now available through the School Tours of America website or by mail (information coming home with students). Price for trip is all-inclusive (airfare, transportation, hotel, food, and tours). Register by July 1, 2016 for 2016 pricing. You might want to consider traveling with your child for a special trip to culminate the 5th Grade year and study of American History!
You can register online at www.schooltoursofamerica.com using our BHE trip number: #7923. All you need to register is a $99 registration fee. The trip can be paid out over the course of the school year. I hope you will consider this fabulous, fun-filled opportunity!
