Zoom Link Below!

Final Reminder to 6th and 7th grade families! Come to an informational meeting for our trip to Japan (did you guess?!) during Summer 2025. The meeting is Tuesday, November 7th from 6:00-7:00pm hosted on Zoom by Middle School DHH teacher Hillary Hubacker and Renaissance teacher Mrs. Amy Johnson.

At the meeting we will share details about our upcoming trip, including the itinerary, cost, and how to sign up. We do anticipate that this trip to an exciting new destination will fill up quickly. To reserve your student’s space on the trip and secure the best price, sign-ups will begin immediately following our meeting. If you are interested in getting a copy of the slideshow or can’t make the meeting:  provide your contact information here.

If you can attend, here is the Zoom link! See you soon and Arigatō!
