Today, we sent home a small packet of forms for the Philly Trip. The first page details your balance due. The next page (two-sided) is made up of two forms for you to complete; a memo of understanding and a permission slip. The last page is the room selection form for you and and your child to complete together. All three forms and your final balance are due back to Eve Heyman by Thursday, April 9th. As we get closer to June, we will send home more information about the details of the trip (itinerary, expectations & guidelines, packing list, health forms, etc.). There will also be a trip meeting in June for students. Parents will be welcome to attend the meeting.
Just so you are prepared: there are two events on the trip that will require students to "dress up". The day we leave (when we go to a Broadway show) students need to wear nice clothes and shoes (no shorts, jeans, or sneakers). We also go on a dinner dance cruise. Girls typically wear dresses (or a skirt and a nice top) and nice shoes. Boys typically wear nice slacks, a collared shirt, and nice shoes (often this includes a jacket and tie). At all other times, students may wear shorts, T-shirts, and sneakers but they must meet the OB School dress code as outlined in the student handbook.
This is an exciting time. We really look forward to it! If there are ANY questions or concerns about the trip, the money due, and/or the forms we sent home, please don't hesistate to contact us.
Please read the information carefully.
Thanks so much!
Eve Heyman & Jean Holenko
