More info. about financial options are at the bottom of this page.

Early Registration - If you register soon, you save on the overall cost of the trip.  Mr. Wallace is encouraging anyone interested in going on the trip to register by December 1, 2016.  

Flower bulbs should have been delivered in the past few days.  If you have not received your bulbs or if the order is incorrect, please contact Mr. Wallace by Monday, November 7.  If we wait past that date, the company may no longer have stock to fill or correct the order.

Invitation & Bulb Fundraiser - BULB SALE OVER
You are invited to come on an awesome trip to Philadelphia and Washington with EWG JHS.  On September 1/2, students received an invitation letter giving some basics about the trip and our first fundraiser.  Official sign up packets will be coming in mid-September.  

Full Refund Program
It is highly recommended (even by our School Committee) that you participate in the Full Refund Program.  If you need to cancel your child's registration for any reason (illness, moving out of district, retention, etc.), WorldStrides will refund all money paid to WorldStrides (less no-refundable deposit, fees, and Full Refund Program cost).  This program also includes special Job Loss Protection.  You must check Yes or No at the bottom of the sign up form or online.   

Once you register for the trip in late September/October, friend us on Facebook...EWGDiscoverDC.  We will make most announcements through Facebook.  If you don't use Facebook, please email Mr. Wallace and he will add you to an email list.

How and when will my fundraiser money be applied?
Once you register, your fundraiser money will be applied directly to your child's account.  This transfer will take place once per month from October to December and then as needed for any later registrations.

Financial Assistance
WorldStrides offers financial assistance.  Please read about the FLAG Foundation assistance program in your registration packet or online as you register. 

Payment Plan Options/Fundraising Explained
Installment Plan:  
     If you select the installment plan, fundraising money is applied to your account as it is sent in and goes towards the current monthly payment due.  So if you have a payment of $100 due and $40 of fundraiser money is sent to Worldstrides, then the parent payment for that month is $60.

     Fundraising money is applied to the final payment and then works backwards.
