Bayside High School NJROTC Trip to Washington, D.C.


Bayside High School NJROTC is requesting School Board approval to conduct a field trip to Washington, D.C. and Marine Corps Base, Quantico, Virginia, on April 28 - May 2, 2010.  During the trip the cadets will tour the National Museum of the Marine Corps and participate in tours of the Capitol, Arlington National Cemetery, Smithsonian Institute and numerous national monuments and museums in Washington, D.C.

Forty-four (44) Naval Science I, II, III, and IV cadets and five (5) adult (male and female) chaperones plan to travel by Travelynx charter bus.  The group will be staying at the HQMC Henderson Hall.

The group plans to leave Bayside High School at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 28, 2010, and return at approximately 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, May 2, 2010.  Two (2) school days will be missed (April 29 and 30).  The cost will be approximately $200 per cadet.  The cadets conducted fundraising activities during August-December 2009 to defer individual expenses.  There will be no cost to the District.
