What's happening with the Orlando, Florida trip?
Late last semester, we learned we could not move forward with our senior trip proposal to Orlando, Florida (an e-mail was sent to all parents on the e-mail list). We stopped all fundraising to regroup and revisit trip options.
Will there be a senior trip?
We hope so! We are still working with a travel company suggested by a senior parent (Summit Tour and Travel) and have decided for the #2 destination, South Padre Island.
What's the plan?
Planning a trip takes time (especially getting the various approvals needed to move forward), but we think we've created a new itinerary that meets our needs. So far, the 2 day, 1 night trip itinerary we have presented to administration includes:
What happened with the money from last semester?
We have a spreadsheet of students who helped with last semester's fundraisers as well as the amount they've fundraised individually. If you are interested in knowing how much money will go towards your trip costs, please contact Ms. Barragan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I still fundraise?
We currently have no fundraisers planned at this time since we are still waiting on trip approval. We will make an announcement and begin planning at least one more fundraiser once we have a definitive answer.
What will happen if this trip doesn't happen?
In the event that our trip proposal is denied once again, it is likely we lose the energy and time to plan yet another one. The money in our school account will likely be reinvested in other class activities, prizes or scholarships.
Seniors, there's still time to do this, but we're approaching deadlines fast. I haven't given up yet, but without your questions and support, I don't really know whether a trip is something seniors still want. PLEASE share this information with your parents and friends, request status updates and let's get the momentum going!
