Field Trip Announcement from Mr. Cohen
To help kick off the 2021-22 school year, the 9th grade and 10th grade will take a relaxing float down the Brandywine River on a 1 1/2 hour tubing trip on Friday, September 17th. We will leave school at 9:00 and return at 2:00 in the afternoon. There will be six chaperones and we will be taking the school vans. We will be making the trip through Wilderness Canoe Trips, Inc. This trip should be a great bonding experience for our 9th and 10th grade students. We will then go to Grotto Pizza on Concord Pike afterwards to celebrate the beginning of the school year. Look for an email containing more details about the trip from Mr. Cohen. If you have any questions concerning the Tubing Trip Next Friday contact Mr. Cohen at mcohen@hilltopprep.org.
