Trip surveys are how we gauge student/parent interest on possible trips. As potential trips arise, students will be given a survey that asks whether they wish to attend the trip, and whether their parents wish to chaperone. We don’t guarantee chaperones, however we will do our best to accommodate as many chaperones as possible.
