Senior Class Trip to Boston - Spring 2017

The senior class trip to Boston is now accepting names and deposits of $50 to reserve your spot on the trip. The final cost of the trip has yet to be determined but it should be similar or higher than the cost of this year's trip to Washington ($629). If you are in grade 10 this year or grade 11 or 12 next school year then you are eligible for this trip. The trip will include: a walking tour of the downtown Boston area, a night in Salem examining the witch trials, whale watching on the Atlantic Ocean, tax free shopping in New Hampshire, a tour of the USS Nautilus - the first nuclear powered submarine, a visit to Mystic Aquarium and a dinner and dance in Mystic. Plus a few more items along the way. Discipline issues or behaviour that requires attention by the school Administration could disqualify a student from attending the Boston trip.  To pay your $50 deposit, please use the on-line banking.  (If you get a warning when you try to access the site, click on Continue to the Site)
