Date: May 9th, 2019 (Thursday)

Time of Departure: 3AM Thursday (yes, 3AM – the morning 3AM!)
Time of Arrival: 11PM Thursday
Cost: Everything is FREE! Meals & Transportation!

Deadline to Sign Up: April 12th – Friday
Where do I sign up? College Center with Mr. Lopez
Considerations: AP exams! The following exams are taking place the day of the trip and the day after. If you have an exam the 9th you can’t go! If you have an exam on the 10th, I highly suggest you reconsider this trip! Why? You will be tired from the long day and the last thing you want to do is study for APUSH / APCOMPSCI at midnight and beyond. If you are a junior still trying to go on this trip and if you miss the APUSH exam or APCOMPSCI exam you will not be allowed to reschedule and you will pay any fee associated with not taking the exam. If you still want to go and have an AP exam the next day and you bomb it due to lack of sleep and focus, you run the risk of ruining your College Board AP GPA which impacts AP Scholar, Distinction, etc…
