:: NON-SCHOOL SPONSORED EVENT- US History Educational Trip Opportunity

Information and enrollment meeting SEPTEMBER 20th 6:00pm at Heritage Peak Charter School, Vacaville site.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I’m pleased to announce that I will be organizing a non-school sponsored educational trip to Washington D.C and New York City through EE Explore America. This will take place in June of 2019.

This trip will be open for CURRENT 7th-12th grade students, their parents/guardian, and staff.

We will be traveling with EF Explore America, the world's largest private educational organization. With over

50 years of experience, their unparalleled resources and expertise have helped millions of students step out

of their comfort zones and into the world around them. At the enrollment meeting, I'll answer questions, review the itinerary and officially begin to enroll students and parents on the tour. This is a great opportunity so I hope you and your child will be able to come and learn more.

Please RSVP via email to vstone@heritagepeak.org no later than Sept. 17th.

Thank you,

Vanessa Stone
