Well the vote is in and NEW YORK has won, sorry for the Baltimore/Annapolis and Washington people. I am looking forward to a great day and hope everyone will enjoy it as well.
The students Do Not need to wear their uniforms and can dress casual appropriate. this means no tee shirts with inappropriate messages, no spaghetti straps unless under a jacket, they can wear sneakers we will be doing a lot of walking, etc. They can bring electronic devices but the school nor I am responsible for loss. The students can bring a back pack but they are responsible to carry it most of the day as the bus will not be with us at all times. A permission slip must be signed by the parent even if you are attending the trip.
The cost will be paid through Option C and is $155 for parent and student as well. This cost includes a tip for the tour guide and bus driver. Agenda is listed below. We leave at 7AM so please be here on time and if you are not attending then I need to know who your child will be going home with when we return. Only 3 parents are not attending the trip.
The parents who have requested to go and have their clearances in place are the following: Mrs. Alexander, Mrs. Antonelli, Mrs. Baker, Mrs. Burns(Ryan), Mr. Burns (Tom), Mrs. Connor, Mr. Ferris, Mr. or Mrs. Fiduccia, Mrs. Fischer, Mrs. Glunz, Mrs. Goldner, Mr. or Mrs. Iannacone, Mrs. LaMorte, Mrs. McCarthy, Mrs. McCoy, Mrs.Muldowny, Mrs. Nash, Mr. or Mrs. O'Reilly, Mrs. Phinn, Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Sullivan, Mrs. Wheeler, Mrs. Zelly. These parent have all be checked with the rectory, if for some reason the other parent has to come they also have to be approved in order to go on the trip. Each parent is responsible for their own child and if the parent is not attending then I need to know which parent will be responsible for their child. The students whose parents are not attending are Trevor, Talia, and Chris.
The room Mother's can bring snacks along for the trip, but please bring items that will be easily handled on a moving bus. It can be windy on the boat so a jacket is suggested. If I have any other information regarding the trip I will contact you, or if you have any questions please contact me.
Please keep checking Option C for grades and remind your child that we still have a lot of material to cover in class and that good respectful behavior is expected.
The students are bringing home their Graduations robes today or tomorrow depending on the weather. Please keep it in a safe place for the Graduation ceremony. The robe will be collected after the Graduation Mass in order for it to be used next year. Today the students had their individual pictures and group picture taken. Thank you to the Mother who ironed and measured the robes, as well as Mr. Iannacone for taking the group pictures.
