*The evening of games does not fit into the humanities-themed trip. However, a secondary goal of the trip is to promote community within the class. We believe this activity will achieve this goal and will be fun for students. It is always a big hit!

No additional parent chaperones are needed at this time.
If you have any questions, please direct them to Minda McCandless or Sarah Whitcher.
