Washington D.C. PowerPoint Presentation
We are excited to announce that the 8th Grade Field Trip this year will be to Washington, D.C. on Thursday, March 14 through Friday, March 15, 2019. This trip will be a fantastic learning experience for both students and chaperones. The total cost of the field trip is $230.00 per student/chaperone. We are working with Holbrook School Tours for this educational trip, and they have already begun planning a very comprehensive itinerary for our students. The exact itinerary will be shared closer to the field trip date, but students will visit the monuments, Arlington National Cemetery, The White House, the U.S. Capitol Building, the Smithsonian museums, and the new Museum of African American History and Culture. During this trip, students will be able to connect with many concepts covered throughout the Social Studies/U.S. History Curriculum and the Civil Rights Unit in Language Arts.
The cost of the trip ($230.00) covers the hotel, buses, hotel security guards, educational tour guides, the entrance into all venues that charge an admission fee, and all meals except lunch on the first day (students bring a bag lunch from home). To reserve a spot for your student, a minimum non-refundable payment of $60.00 per person and a completed permission form must be turned in by Friday, November 2nd. Please make all checks payable to Apex Middle School. You may also choose to pay the full amount early.
