Hawaii TRIP MEETING Nov 11th- 6 p.m.- EMHS Ms. Shannon Hill-Campbell’s Room Freshman Academy 421

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students- and Teachers/Counselors !!!

After much research, we have decided to change our travel destination from Belize to Hawaii. The COVID numbers are MUCH lower in Hawaii due to the precautions their state has taken. Also, it makes many of the parents/students/teachers much more comfortable to know if someone were to become ill that we would be in the US.

So- I am SUPER excited !!!!! It has taken us some time to get our travel arrangements changed but we are now back in business!

We will have our TRIP meeting on Nov 11th at 6 p.m. in Shannon Hill-Campbell’s classroom. I will be there as well.

Remember:

1. This can be a family trip! Age limits for siblings to attend is 5-6th grade/11 years. Family members and grandparents are encouraged to attend. Many of our past trips have included family members and many people have arranged to do the tour with us and then stay a longer period of time. Middle school students are welcome to attend. I will be reaching out to the 8th grade but if you have a middle school-aged student who 11 years or older- they are totally invited

2.  We will be leaving in a window through either June 1st to June 11th. The trip date is fluid until 2 months before the trip. So if you want to ask off from work or make arrangements be sure to request time off from June 1st- June 11th. Right now we are trying for June 6th to be the day that we leave OKC to Hawaii!

3. We have monthly and bi-monthly payment plants,! Come to our meeting for more information. EF does give scholarships. Students have to explain why they want the scholarship and how are they going to use this time to make a positive impact on other students.
