2021 GMS DC-NYC Trip

Hi 7th grade families!

In our crazy times, I wanted to let you know the show much go on! The epidemic isn't going to hold this guy back! That's right, we will still be having our parent meeting on Tuesday evening. However, we will be doing it virtually instead of going to GMS for an in-person meeting.


At 6:00PM on Thursday, January 28th, I will be hosting a Zoom meeting. Zoom is a video conferencing tool. This application will allow me to show my face speaking to you about this awesome opportunity you can provide to your kiddos. I will also be able to show you the awesome video Worldstrides, the company we travel through, has provided. You will probably need to download the app on whatever device you are using. I will be in the meeting 15 minutes early in case anyone wants to make sure their Zoom is working.


I will also have an attendance form I will need you to fill out during the meeting. I will post the link on this webpage as well as in the Zoom call.


This meeting is EXTREMELY informational, so please do what you can to meet on this night. I will not be having another meeting until the fall. Get the jump on this now! 


Questions, please email hayes@sps186.org. I am super slammed with work, so please be patient with me. I will do my best to respond within 48 hours. 

~Mr. Hayes
