7th Grade Overnight Trip To Philadelphia

Hello everyone,

We’re happy to share with you that there will be a 7th grade overnight trip to Historic Philadelphia on Monday, May 22nd until Tuesday, May 23rd.

The cost of the trip to Philadelphia will be $300 per student.   Of that, $275 will be payable to BSI and sent to Maryana in the office; $5 payable in cash via backpack to Tricia Ragone for driver/other tips and $20 should be on-hand with your child for lunches on the trip.

We *really* want everyone to participate in this trip, so if you need to speak with me privately about financial assistance, I am at my post.

We need parent chaperones!  Please sign up here:

A draft itinerary will be sent soon, but here are some logistics:
