Nashville Trip Information!
Nashville Letter
Final Payment:
CCIS, the travel company, has sent the final invoice for the Nashville trip.  Originally their estimated trip cost was determined based on ~150 students participating in the trip.  Since there are only 96 students going on the trip, the cost per person has increased from their original estimate.

The cost of the trip will be $800 for students ($50 discount will be applied for siblings) and $700 for chaperones.

Final payment is due on Wednesday, March 29.
