Hello, my name is Lina Carlos and I am raising money for my grandson Angelo Carlos. He attends St. Benilde School, is in the 7th grade, and has an opportunity to attend this "field trip" with his teachers and classmates. This is the letter from his teacher:
"Dear Parents and Students:
Mrs. Virga and I (Melissa Williams) are very excited to announce the return of the Close-Up Washington, D. C. trip for this year! For those who do not know, this is an exciting opportunity for our middle school students to enjoy a fun, education-packed trip to our nation's capital. This year we will be going during Mardi Gras break from February 19-24. In addition to the traditional sites of Washington, D.C., we will also have a day trip to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to visit the historic Gettysburg Battlefield and see where President Lincoln gave his famous Gettysburg Address.
The 5-day trip costs $1,817 for students. The price includes all transportation, food, hotel accommodations, and tourist attraction fees. The only things not included are spending money, and the cost of whatever we do when we land in Washington and before we check in with the program Sunday night.
This experience is truly a great opportunity for our students to actually see the history they learn about in class. We are very excited to have the opportunity to offer it once again."
I would greatly appreciate any of your blessings to help Angelo (my Balong) attend.
Lina Carlos (Lala)
