The 6th grade class will be attending Camp St. Croix again for the fifth year in a row on Monday, October 16 and Tuesday, October 17! This is a trip centered around community-building and taking healthy risks. It is a highlight of our year!

Permission slips went home with students last week. The deadline for permission slips is Friday, September 29. The fee is $150, but scholarships are available. We do not want the fee to be the reason your student doesn't attend. Please contact your student's advisory teacher with any additional questions.

Volunteers Needed
We are getting excited for our trip to Camp St. Croix. We really rely on parents to make camp a success. Please consider volunteering. It is an awesome place and the students get so much out of it. It's an easy gig—the teachers and staff at Camp St. Croix will lead the groups and we just need your support along the way. Join us! We would love it!

If you'd like to join us, sign up to volunteer at camp St. Croix. All parents/guardians who sign up will have to complete a background check. We will be happy to get you the form so you can fill them out and we can get them checked as soon as possible.
