If Your Child Is Already Registered For the Trip
The student contract, which requires both student and parent signatures, is due next Friday, November 22. If you need a new copy of the student contract, you may pick one up in the main office.

There is a portal function for the 8th Grade Trip to Boston that you might be interested in! Each student who has registered has a unique link on their portal account. This link is found in the tab “Help Me Travel”. Students can send this link by email, post it on their social media, etc. By clicking on that unique link, individuals are able to make a donation, which goes straight to their account!

If Your Child Isn't Registered Yet - It's Not Too Late!
Use our Online Portal to register at https://portal.jumpstreet.com/Tour
Tour Code: TDVW62V

You do NOT have to make a payment to register and save your child's spot.

This online portal allows you to register your student, inform the tour guides about any allergies or other medical needs, make payments using a credit card, and even invite friends or family to support your student by making a financial contribution.

If you need help with the registration process, please contact Mrs. Erica Pasquarelli at 978-921-6103 x24360 or Ms. Jamie Norton x 24460.

Cost & What It Includes
The $210 price includes all transportation, full breakfast, guided tour of Fenway Park, admission to Blue Man Group, dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe, and a private Duck Boat Tour.

Our students will get to know the city of Boston by foot, by bus and by boat! They will be energized and entertained by one of the most critically acclaimed theatrical presentations in the country, dine in style at the Hard Rock CafĂ©, and enjoy the hit of last year’s trip - a behind-the-scenes tour of Fenway Park! This is an event not to be missed!

Price Reduced Due to Fundraising
The total price is discounted thanks to the previous success of the Direct Donation Drive, Cash Calendar Sales, and other fundraising efforts. We need your continued support! Be sure to join us for this year’s Staff vs. Student Basketball Game in 2020. All proceeds go to the Boston Trip scholarship fund.
