Mr. Frigillana, the 7th grade Social Studies teacher, and Ms. Jagusch, the 6th grade Social Studies teacher, will speak to parents regarding the Close Up trip to Washington DC. Close Up is a 5 day long Civics intensive, in which the students will travel to Washington DC (and perhaps Gettysburg, PA, or Philadelphia, PA), meet with students from all over the country, and learn the intricacies of being an active citizen, in addition to experiencing all of the great sights and sounds of the DC area. More information about Close Up may be found at www.closeup.org. At the meeting, we will answer basic questions (cost, fundraising, meals, etc) and hear from students who have gone on the Close Up trip, through GCAA, in the past. 10/8/12, 5:30 – 6:30pm, Before the PA Meeting in the North Cafeteria.
