RE:           Senior Class Trip

The 2013 Senior Class Trip is now being organized to visit various Walt Disney World
attractions. It is scheduled for April 20th through April 23rd and transportation to and
from Florida will be via chartered air flight.

Cost of the trip will be $1,032.00 per student. This is a $42 increase over last year's trip
price, with the majority of the increase coming from higher transportation costs (fuel
increase) and increased Disney costs. By notifying you about the trip now it is hoped that
the summer months will provide many students the opportunity to earn money for the

School policy continues to require that at least half of the class be enrolled for this
activity. A non-refundable deposit of $332 is required by Thursday, June 14th. This
deposit is 100% refundable through September 2012.

Hopefully, the basic information provided in this packet will assist you in making a
decision about the upcoming trip. More detailed information will be provided next year.

We look forward to a memorable trip for the Class of 2013! Return your deposit and
commitment form to the Activities Office as soon as possible. Deposits will be accepted
anytime EXCEPT during homeroom.
