Intermediate School News for January 7-13, 2013

7th & 8th DC Trip Meeting Change

Due to multiple scheduling conflicts, the DC Trip Information-Parent Meeting, scheduled for Monday, will now be Thursday, January 10. There will be two meeting times offered on Thursday. The times are 12:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. Each session should last no longer than 45 minutes. It is our hope that the different meeting times will help to accommodate most schedules. If you are unable to attend either session, we will have a podcast of the meeting available at your viewing convenience. Also, if it helps, only one parent/guardian needs to attend.

The DC Trip is an amazing learning experience for our 7th and 8th graders. We look forward to meeting with you next Thursday to discuss the details and guidelines of this wonderful trip opportunity.
