Group Plans Trip to Presidential Inauguration

Those students in grades 9-12 still interested in traveling to Washington, DC to take part in the presidential inauguration still have an opportunity to sign up!  The deadline has been pushed back until Friday, November 9.  There have also been some travel options created for those students who have a show choir competition on Saturday, January 19.  Students and their families can now choose from the following trip options:

Travel Option 1 – Leave from Des Moines on Saturday, January 19 and return on Tuesday, January 22.  Cost is $1,745
Travel Option 2 – Leave from Moline on Sunday, January 20 and return on Tuesday, January 22.  Cost is $1,745 (more expensive to fly out of Moline and on a Sunday).
Travel Option 3 – Leave from Des Moines on Sunday, January 20 and return on Tuesday, January 22.  Cost is $1,550.

Registration needs to be completed by Friday, November 9.  Registration simply involves a $99 deposit that is refundable if the trip is cancelled and applies to your total if the trip takes off accordingly.  The student and their family then worlds directly with World Strides, the company we are working with for our trip, to pay the remaining balance.  All participating students, regardless of which travel option they choose, will meet with the large group to arrange our own group itinerary.

This has the potential to be a once in a lifetime experience.  Please email Scott Blum at with any questions, and/or more information about registering.  Twenty-five students must be signed up by Friday, November 9 for the trip to happen.
