If you are an 8th grader going on the East Coast trip, if you want the information regarding doing an at-home sponsorship call-a-thon, go see Ms. Mankins today!
If you are an 8th grader who is NOT signed up for the east coast trip next June, a YELLOW flier went home last Friday Nov 15 describing the changes to the trip: it is shorter and the price is reduced.
The YELLOW flier has information on the price cut, information on the trip, and how to register.
