The planning for the 2017 - 2018 Washington D.C. trip has begun! It is our hope that this experience will significantly add to our students’ appreciation of history, heritage, government and diversity.  The 8th graders will be traveling to To Washington D.C. Tuesday, March 6 - Friday, March 9, 2018.  Trip cost will be  $600.00 if payments are made by Paypal. Payment can also be made by check or money order and mailed directly to Campbell Travel at 123 Hunter Ridge Rd., Butler, PA 16001, but the cost will be $620.00.  Important note:  If paying by check, DO NOT send them signature required!!  Please hold off on making payments until after the first parent meeting to gain greater understanding of fundraising opportunities. 

From now until March 6, 2018 you will find announcements and payment schedules for the upcoming D.C. field trip at this site.  I will be posting the date of our first parent information meeting in the near future!!   You must attend this meeting if you intend to send your student to Washington D.C.!!! There are many important details that must be completed before we leave.  For example:  If you do not turn in a permission slip, you are not on the trip!!!  Stay informed and up to date by checking this site weekly.  Scroll down to find all future announcements.  Thanks.

Parent, We will be gathering in the middle school on Tuesday, Feb. 27 at 7:00 P.M. in the cafeteria to discuss final arrangements for the DC Trip!!  If you have a student attending the trip someone should be present to here all final instructions.  Prior to the meeting.....if your student takes any prescribed medication please get all authorization forms turned in!!!  Those forms must be signed by the physician who prescribed them, and without the forms, chaperons will not be permitted to give the students their medication.  Also make certain that all OneView Forms are completed on line.....In addition, if you want to send a medical insurance card, start getting copies of the front and back of the card sent to me at the school.  See you all Tuesday, Feb. 27.

Parents,The trip is currently full!!  To hold a spot on the trip, students were to have a permission slip turned in to me.  We now have 200 students signed up to attend the trip, and any permission slip I receive from today on will be placed on a wait list in the order I receive them.  I will let the students on the wait list know when spots become available.  If you have any concerns about whether your students spot is secured on the trip or not have them check with their Social Studies teacher.  They have access to the master list.  Thanks.

Just a heads up.....I received notification from Double Good Popcorn that our delivery has shipped, and should be here on the 21st. Please plan accordingly based on the size of your order.  Also, your student as of yesterday was given a slip of paper via their social studies teachers detailing their total profit earned from the combined fundraisers and final balance owed to Campbell travel.  Everyone should be able to start making partial or full payments as of now.  If you need a new invoice, shoot me an email and I will update your information for Lori Campbell.

Best Results orders were delivered to the school today and students should have brought them home!!  I still have a couple orders in my classroom that do not have any name associated with them, which would imply that the students did not put their name on the form!!  If you sold items and turned in a form but did not get anything brought home today, have your student stop by my room to see if the order belongs to them.  I do have the order sheets with customer names, so if they can identify who they sold to we can hopefully identify their delivery that way.

Many of you received your invoice for the Washington D.C trip payment today.  If you intend to make the full payment via your credit card and checking account go ahead and use the invoice and make your payment.  Many people however have voiced before the invoice was released that they would prefer to make payments, and that can still be done, but Lori will need to go into each invoice and set that up.  If you could please help me out, and let me know by email who wants to make payments that  will make things a little easier.  Lori will then go in and re-invoice you for the partial payment.  If you are still fundraising please ignore all invoices at this time.  DO NOT MAKE PAYMENTS until fundraising is finished at the end of this month.  You will not be penalized for a late payment!!
Thanks for your patience!!

Here are some updates concerning the Washington D.C. trip:
1.  Best Results has asked for an extension of their product delivery date.  The new delivery date will be Tuesday, October 17th.   
2.  I will be sending home profit amounts earned by each student who participated in the fundraiser by Monday, October 16th.  
3.  We will be rolling out our next fundraiser on Monday or Tuesday of next week.  I am waiting on the order brochures.  If here on Monday, we will start the fundraiser on that day.  We will be selling Double Good Popcorn.  This is a 50% profit sale, so your student will earn half of whatever they sell towards the cost of their trip to Washington D.C.  
4.  Many have been asking when to expect their PayPal Account invoice to be emailed to them.  I have been compiling a list pf emails to be sent to Lori Campbell.  I am hoping to get several more here soon.  As of now there are only 106 students signed up to attend the trip.  Please get your permission slips turned in to me quickly if you intend to send your student on the trip!! At this point don't expect an Invoice from PayPal until after the due date.  Don't worry though.  As long as you have your permission slip turned in, your student's spot is safe!!

So this is late, but our first fundraiser has come to an end, and any student who still needs to turn order forms in can do so through Friday, September 8.  Orders will not be accepted after Friday.  Thanks

Welcome to the 2017 - 2018 school year. If you have an interest in allowing your student to attend the 2018 8th Grade trip to Washington D.C. there will be a parent meeting in the CW Middle School Cafeteria on Wednesday, September the 6th at 7:00 P.M. The meeting should last about 45 minutes to an hour. As mentioned above this meeting is very important due to changes in policy and trip procedures. Please make every effort to be present, so that you understand every aspect of what needs to take place before your student can attend the trip. I look forward to seeing you all there! Thanks.
