TWIGEB (12/02/19-12/07/19)

Happy Thanksgiving Break!

Below you will find all of the details for the week after break (12/02/19-12/07/19). Remember to always check for the most updated schedule.

Spring Trip Chaperones

Thank you to the 30+ parents who signed up to volunteer for our spring trip. Unfortunately we can only take 17 parents (1 parent per 10 students). Consideration was based on volunteering on the booster board, volunteer hours throughout the year, past spring trip experience and seniority. Again, thank you for wanting to help; this was a very tough decision to make as we have the best parents in the world! If plans have changed, please let me know ASAP. Price for chaperones is $100 less than students ($1075) and payments should be made immediately.
