Dear 7th Grade Cardinal Families,
Exciting news! We have just been approved for our 7th grade fall field trip to the North Carolina Renaissance Festival! We will be traveling on October 11, 2017 to Huntersville, NC. Busses leave the school at 8:15am and return at 5:30pm. Please be sure to have your child to school on time. We will not be able to hold the busses.
Lunch will not be provided so please plan on packing a lunch or providing money to buy lunch at the festival. There will be plenty of food booths at the event.
Please print the permission slips and turn them in, with the fees, by Monday, October 2, 2017. The cost for the trip, covering admission and transportation, is $47.00. We hope that all students can participate in this event. Therefore, we ask that you please inform your homeroom teacher if you are in need of financial assistance. We will do what we can to help!
We are also in need of Parent Chaperones. Would you like to join us? There are currently 15 spaces available for this trip. The cost for chaperones is $12.00.
