Subject: Join us on Monday, October 1st!
Dear Parents & Family of current 7th and 8th grade students,

We are very excited to announce that we will be leading a select group of students and parents on an educational tour to Washington, D.C. and Mt. Vernon on July 10-13, 2020. Together, we will embark on a journey taking us outside the classroom walls, where learning comes alive and lifelong memories are created.

There will be a short parent informational meeting to discuss this educational adventure on:

Monday, October 1st – 6:30 P.M.
at Maquoketa Middle School

We have made this journey affordable for all families. Enrolling in advance not only guarantees a reserved spot on the trip, but also makes each traveler eligible for an Early Bird Scholarship of $300. This ensures reasonable monthly installments of only $86 for families who take advantage of the scholarship opportunity.

Enroll before or on October 1st & save $300!

Tour logistics and awesome-ness will be handled by World Classrooms, an educational travel program. They will do everything possible to make sure we have a safe, well-organized, and fun experience. Please feel free to contact them with trip enrollment questions at 800.275.3980 or email Mrs. Cavanagh at or Ms. Scholl at

We sincerely hope you will take advantage of this special opportunity to invest in your student’s future, and that you will consider joining us on this adventure as well!

Don’t miss out,
Kate Cavanagh & Angie Scholl
