9th Grade 4 Point 2013 – Important upcoming dates

October 29, 2012

We are all excited to get this project going.  Here are some important dates as we get started –

  1. You will find out which trip your son or daughter is on by Thanksgiving break and more specific information will be shared at that time
  2. We will be taking Visa photos on December 12th 8:30-9:00am in Dirk MacKnight’s office
  3. I need ALL PASSPORTS Tuesday January 8th the first day after Winter break.  Please note the passport expiration date must be LATER than Jan. 1, 2014.
  4. Use Thanksgiving and Winter Term Break to get immunizations and send in documentation to our Health Center.  If you can not get the immunizations we will be doing that on Wednesday January 9th.

To whet your appetite for the journey ahead here are a few images ……
