    Second DC Payments Due on Friday, January 13.
    After making this second payment, students and chaperones should have a balance remaining of $100.00 or less for the DC field trip (meaning a total of at least $140.00 should have been paid by 1/13 between down payments and second payments).

    Students will be sent home with individual balance sheets the week of January 3. Once again, payments can be made in person (cash/check) or online.
