We’re going to Epcot — January 17, 2015!

Dear Parents,

The World Language Department would like to invite your child to Epcot on January 17th, 2015.  Students will be departing from Oakleaf at 7:00 a.m. and will return to OHS that evening at approximately 11:30 p.m.  The cost of the trip is $95.00.  If you are a season ticket holder the cost is $37.00.   If you have any questions about the upcoming trip, please contact Sra. Scarborough.

 The purpose of our trip is to discover, explore and learn to recognize how the various aspects of culture are impacted by changes in technology, commerce, communication and people.  Students will discover how technological advancement is rapidly changing global communication.  They will explore reasons why culture is defined in different ways.  They will learn that while people come from many different cultural backgrounds, all have similar needs, interests, and issues and they will appreciate that all people are different.  Also, there will be a project involved in this field trip that will be explained in advance to the students who will be attending.

We will begin collecting money immediately.   Students can make payments in installments; however, the trip must be paid in full and all forms returned by November 27th.  Paying in advance will help to secure your child’s seat and the buses.  You may pay in full…Remember seats will be filling up fast so reserve your seat now.  Please remember cash, cashier’s check or money order is accepted.  No PERSONAL CHECKS. There is no REFUND!

 Students who attend should plan to bring spending money for food, sunscreen and wear plenty of layers as the weather is unpredictable during that time of year.  The students will be able to leave blankets and pillows on the bus but will need to take the items with them they will need for the day.   Students will not be able to return to the buses until departure at 8:30 pm.

If you have any further questions, about the trip please contact Sra. Scarborough.
