Welcome to the home of the South Middle School Grade 8 Washington, D.C. Trip.  We are pleased to announce that the 2020 trip was officially approved by school committee!  The trip will be from Wednesday, March 18 through Saturday, March 21.

There will be an informational meeting for all South seventh grade students and parents interested in registering for next year's trip.  The meeting will be held in the South auditorium at next Tuesday, June 11, at 6:00.  We hope to see you there.

If you found your way here from East, not to worry!  The trips will be running separately from now on.  The East trip will run in May 2020 and more information will be made available to you in the fall.

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!

Medical Forms

Medical Forms for the trip are now available in schools and under the "Medical Form" tab to the left.  All Medical Forms are due no later than Friday, January 18.

It is incredibly important that this information is accurate and returned to Ms. Leader, Ms. Proulx, or Mr. Puglisi as soon as possible so that school nurses can begin reviewing information and preparing for the trip.  Please let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you!

Roommate Requests

All roommate requests are due by TOMORROW!  Right now, about half of the students at each school have completed them.  If you have not turned in a request by tomorrow night, we will be choosing roommates for you!  Go to the roommate tab to the left to find the directions for filling out the roommate request.

Registration Deadline

posted Nov 5, 2018, 9:41 AM by Michael Puglisi

Just a reminder that the deadline to register with EF is this Friday!  If you have not registered with EF by Friday, you may lose your spot on the trip!  Directions for how to register were e-mailed a few weeks ago (and if you applied last week, they'll be on their way today).

If you have questions about the payment process or available plans, go to the Payment tab of the website.  Please note that all payments are done through the tour company, not the schools, so most questions can be answered by EF.

If you haven't received instructions to register by tomorrow, please let us know!
