    Washington DC/Civil War Battlefields Trip 

    Every year our school offers an EXCITING trip to the East Coast. This trip is open to both 7th & 8th grade students. Participants are on a first come, first serve basis (up to 50 students). If all positions are filled, your child will be put on a waiting list. Registration packets are available through your child's social studies teachers.

    Miss the 2018 Trip?

    Believe it or not – it's already time to start planning for the DC 2019 Trip! Our next informational meeting will be held Aug. (TBD) at 6:30pm in the MTMS Media Center. You can register now using the Trip ID (TBD) at Wordstrides.org 

    If you have any questions, feel free to email Mr. Aring at saring@pvschools.net. To prospective travel companies, we are extremely happy with our current company of over 10+ years and are not looking to view other programs. Thank you.
