Hannibal Trip by wcsmrgehrer


									               Hannibal Trip
                   April 19-20, 2011
  We know this is going to be the best trip ever!

1. Quiet time will be enforced on the bus! Quiet time may be
      requested at times if you need to hear directions, if the
      noise level gets too loud or if the bus driver requests it.
      If you will be quiet at the appropriate times, everyone
      will be in a better mood, and our trip will be that much
      more enjoyable.

2. The chaperones want you to have a great time, so
      cooperate! You are expected to show respect at all
      times and abide by the rules. We hope your behavior
      would not warrant any discipline after we return to
      campus, but that is a possibility. Remember, you are in
      charge of your actions, not anyone else.

3. Departure: Tuesday morning we will need to load items on
      the bus BEFORE anyone gets on… so be patient and
      give us some room! If you are NOT on SAGE, you need
      to deposit your COMPLETELY DISPOSABLE sack
      lunch in the box for your bus.

4. Bus Drivers take great pride in keeping their busses clean.
      Throughout the trip, please keep the trash picked up
      and place it in the provided trash bags/can. Happy bus
      drivers give better service. Say “Thank you” as you get
      off the bus, and say “Hello” when you board. Be polite
      at all times, but remember not to talk to the driver
      while he is driving. He may be happy to visit with you
      when we stop.

5. In the hotel:
      open it until you have verified it is someone from
      your group (you MAY NOT visit other students’
     CHECK THE FIRE EXITS as soon as you
     NO RUNNING IN THE HALLS of the hotel.
      Other guests will be disturbed, and we want to be
      allowed to return!
     NO ROOM SERVICE: A yummy breakfast
      buffet is scheduled for Wednesday morning.
     EAT QUIETLY: Use proper manners. Do not
      leave a mess on the table; clean up after
      yourselves, and say thank you to the ladies who
      refill your drinks and serve you… your manners
      make a statement about our school!
     NO PHONE CALLS: Do not call room to room.
      Do not phone home. Everything is fine at home
      even though your family misses you very much.
      You will see your family in 24 short hours!

6. General Information:

     Showers: We expect everyone to shower. It will
      help if two in each room shower in the evening
      and two shower in the morning
     Bedtime: A chaperone will knock on your door
      between 10:15 and 10:30 Tuesday night. Let
      them in. They will tell you goodnight and lights
      out. If the chaperone has to come to your room
      again, you will be subject to discipline, and your
      Wednesday might not be as enjoyable as you want
      it to be. So please obey your chaperone. Your
      chaperone will wake you up at the appropriate
       time (7:30-7:45) the next morning. DO NOT

7. Other Rules:

     School behavior rules apply! Be courteous to all.
      A group is often judged by the behavior of a very
      small quantity of people in the group, so be sure
      you think of others before you do something
      which might reflect poorly on the rest of us!
     Do not bring gum or candy! Snacks will be
      provided on the bus. You will be able to buy
      snacks when you are shopping.
     Questions we do not want to answer:
         -Are we almost there? (or any version of that)
         We will all arrive at the same time!
         -How much farther? Bring a map if you are
         this inquisitive!
         -What are we going to do first when we get
         there? You will have a copy of the schedule.
         -What will we do next? Again… you have the
