Would you like to spend next year’s spring break seeing the sights of Paris, having dinner on the Eiffel Tower, cruising down the Seine River, visiting the Palace at Versailles, enjoying a morning excursion to the top of the world with the nearly 7,000 feet ascent to the summit of Mt. Pilatus, and relaxing on a cruise around Lake Lucerne in Switzerland?  How about crossing the border into Germany and entering the dream castle that served as the model for Sleeping Beauty’s castle, while finishing the week by exploring Munich, Germany and taking an excursion to the concentration camp at Dachau?  

 

Register by May 15th in order to get a $175.00 early enrollment discount off the total price of this amazing trip, and take longer time to make payments if you register this school year.  See Mrs. Cox or Mr. Ryan in guidance for more information and for the trip application.
