Fundraisers for November and December

With the help of our incredible parent-led fundraising team, our first two fundraisers are up and running!  Please use the Fundraising tab for more information on our first two fundraisers, an UNOS dine-out night on Tuesday, November 5 and the Dave & Busters Power Card individual fundraiser!

All flyers and more information on how to help get involved with fundraising can be found under the Fundraising tab to the left!

Waitlisted? Not a problem!

posted Oct 25, 2019, 7:10 AM by Michael Puglisi   [ updated Oct 25, 2019, 7:11 AM ]

If you signed up at the last minute and got put on a waitlist, do not panic!  You ARE on the trip!  We had so many last-minute registrations that we hit a cap we didn't even know existed.  So many more students than we expected that we broke registration?  That's a pretty great problem to have.

I've already been in contact with EF, so not to worry.  They should be reaching out to you soon to officially register you for the trip.

Once everyone is registered, we'll be in touch with the next step in the D.C. process.  Please use this website, the Remind, and the trip Instagram to keep track of all updates and deadlines.

We'll be in touch soon!

Getting Ready for the Big Day!

Final itinerary, room, bus, and chaperone assignments have been posted on the Pre-Departure Meeting page.  Note that you'll need your child's login to access the information.   If you missed the pre-departure meeting, please find your chaperone and check in with them if you haven't already.  They have sweet EF swag to give you!

Here are my last two reminders for next Thursday:
1) Be at your school no later than 5:45 a.m. on Thursday morning.  We leave at 6:00!
2) BRING A LUNCH so you don't starve on the bus ride down.  I'm not sharing my bus ride Swedish Fish.

Join the Remind (@btreedc19) and follow us on Instagram (@braintreedctrip) for updates and photos throughout the trip. 

See you bright and early on Thursday!
