Junior High Optional International Trips: 2018

Print Friendly

Dear NNM Junior High Parents:

Please join me this Wednesday, Oct. 4 at 5:30 to hear about the optional trips available to NNM Junior High students during 2018.  We are running international trips to Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) and the Costa Rica Language Academy (CRLA).

  1. NPH Honduras: April 19-26
  2. NPH Honduras: June 4-11
  3. CRLA: July 22-29

At the meeting I will provide all the info you need to decide if one of these options would be a good fit for your child.  The 8th grade students have priority.  There are usually spaces left for some 7th graders, but 8th graders are given spots first.

I will cover all details of each trip, including the costs. We don’t want financial constraints to be the reason for an 8th grader to not participate, so there will be some financial support available to any 8th grade family who might need it.

You’ll notice that the Montessori Model United Nations (MMUN) is not an option this year.  That’s because we’ve included the MMUN as part of the 8th grade trip, so that ALL 8th graders have a chance to participate in that amazing work.  Click this link for more details on the 2018 8th grade trip and why we’ve combined it with the MMUN.

FYI: Your attendance on Wednesday is highly recommended – but not a requirement – for applying to participate in one of these experiences.  I will post my presentation slides by the end of the week so everyone has access to that information.
