Grad Trip:

  • This year’s grad trip will be at Rockridge Canyon Camp from May 16-18, 2023. We will send a separate email with more information regarding the schedule, the permission slip, and the waiver. 

  • As a part of the week of the Grad trip, the students generally receive a “Skip Day” from the school to either prepare for or rest up after the trip. This year the skip day is Monday, May 15, 2023. Students may stay home that day to prepare for their grad trip and enjoy some rest.

Fundraising Note:

    • We apply the funds first to the grad trip. If students have any remaining funds after the trip costs, they will be put toward each family’s banquet ticket costs, with the family paying the remaining amount. 


This will truly be an amazing time to remember for your graduate. Stay tuned for further updates in the coming weeks.
