Thank you to ALL parents and chaperones who were on the trip – we couldn’t have done it without you! You’re appreciated more than we can say – Thanks for making the trip so successful!!!

We’re going to work on a Google Drive where everyone can drop/save pictures from the trip. Feel free to add/save some: Disney Photos 2018 Please just be sure you don’t delete/remove photos! 

Please don’t forget about the Disney Photo Orders – it’s a great shot!

    • *We are revamping banquet this year – we’ll have more “kid friendly” food (Nicky G’s!) and this event is optional for parents – it’s a chance for the kids to celebrate the season, and they do most of the talking/award giving.
