Gr 8 Washington DC Trip 2023

October 30, 2023 Update:

Hello Lakers.  Attention 8th grade families--the deadline to register to attend the 8th grade trip to Washington DC is approaching.  The registration deadline is November 1st.  We still have space for this trip--but again deadlines are in place because of plans that have to be made for this trip.  See the information and links in the email version of this call for more information.  Thank you!

To:  8th grade Families interested in the Washington DC trip
From: Mrs. Lisa Van Buhler, XOOM Tours.


Hello everyone! It was nice to see so many of you at the parent information meeting. If you missed the meeting, here are the complete trip details.

In a world where learning is increasingly virtual, the Washington, D.C. trip is the perfect opportunity to let your child experience history and culture firsthand. Our capital's landmarks and symbols of democracy are not just to be read about or seen on screens but to be explored, appreciated, and most importantly, experienced!

This memorable, hands-on adventure integrates perfectly with the Humanities, Science, History, and Language Arts curriculum. Your child will have the chance to encounter America's most significant historical sites, fostering a deeper understanding and respect for our shared history.

This trip promises to be one that your child will talk about and cherish for years to come!


Register your student and yourself as a chaperone by November 1st. You can choose to pay in full or opt for a deposit with the remaining balance payable in automatic monthly installments.
