Chelsea Piers 2019

Chelsea Piers 2019



Dear Parents/Guardians:


A full-day class trip is planned for the 8th grade students as a celebration of a successful year in 8th grade and recognition of passage from Middle School to High School.  All students are invited and encouraged to attend as we mark a momentous time in their lives.  This year’s trip will take us to New York City on Friday, June 7th, and will consist of three events. Our morning activities will include breakfast, bowling, and ice skating (long pants required) in the Chelsea Piers Complex.  In the afternoon, students will set sail aboard the Spirit of New York for a luncheon party cruise in New York Harbor.   We will depart via coach buses from the back of the Farragut Complex approximately 7:00am and will return to campus approximately 6:00pm.


This itinerary, which is the result of serious consideration of the expectations and needs of all constituencies and careful planning, is designed to provide an enjoyable and age-appropriate day for our 8th grade students.  Please note that cell phones will not be permitted on this trip.             


This trip is tied into our system of PBIS (Positive Behavior in Schools) and serves as a reward for students’ hard work and appropriate behavior.  If a student’s behavior in school suggests they may not behave in a safe manner on the field trip, they will not be permitted to attend. 


A permission slip is attached.  This year in order to help students and their family’s budget for the trip, a dual payment plan has been initiated.  One half of the $160 trip payment will be due in November with the balance due in March.  Of course, you may pay in full in November if this is more convenient.


Monday, November 5th - $80.00 and permission slip

Monday, March 4th - $80.00 only


Checks should be made out to Hastings-on-Hudson UFSDPlease write your child’s full name on the memo line.  Payment and permission slip will be collected by your child’s ELA teacher.  If financial assistance for all or part of the cost of this trip is needed, please contact Jocelyn Perez, your child’s school counselor, at 478-6228.


In the past, many parents have graciously offered to support our trips by donating additional money to our scholarship fund.  If you would like to make a donation, please send your donation check made out to Hastings-on-Hudson UFSD.  Please write “Scholarship” on the memo line. We thank you in advance for your generosity and continued support for the Farragut Middle School community.
