Mandatory Meetings

All meetings will be at 6:30pm via Zoom (for the time being) unless otherwise posted.

September 23, 2022: This is an introductory meeting where we’ll go over the latest updates on the trip and how you can get involved. The status of the trip depends on a lot of factors, primarily on when Japan reopens for travel. That has not happened yet, but we need to start planning now to keep the door open for a possible trip in June.

October 7, 2022: Mandatory meeting for at least one parent/guardian. This meeting is focused on student readiness. Other topics TBD.

October 21, 2022: Mandatory meeting for students and at least one parent/guardian. This meeting is to inform students about the trip, the various destinations and give them an opportunity to talk with students who participated on the trip in previous years.
