Dear Parent(s) of Eighth Grade students,
We are looking forward to providing a variety of experiences with your students as they wind up their final year at Farmingdale School. We are excited to share that we are able to continue to provide enrichment opportunities which include an overnight class trip to Washington DC, scheduled for March 21-22, 2024.
Our students will be traveling by charter bus to Washington DC on March 21st, spending the day enjoying the sights, museums, memorials, etc. Students will stay overnight at the Arlington Court Suites Hotel, 1200 N Courthouse Rd, Arlington, VA. On March 22nd we will continue to experience the historical sites of Washington DC and will return around dinnertime on March 22nd.
We wanted to inform you of the anticipated cost so that you can plan accordingly. At this time, we have not finalized the exact amount, but based on past Washington D.C. trips we believe the cost per student will be approximately $250.
The following fundraisers will be used to help families offset trip costs, based upon students’/families’ participation:
- Soup Night
Please complete the information below by MONDAY, NOVEMBER 27th, 2023 and indicate on the form whether your child will be attending the trip. If your child will be participating, please submit a non-refundable deposit of $75.00, due by Friday, December 1 , 2024 (checks made payable to “Farmingdale Student Activity Account”).
We are committed to all of our students enjoying this trip, regardless of cost, so if your child is attending, and you anticipate difficulty affording the trip, please contact Mrs. Kokolus.
If you have any questions please contact:
