Costa Rica Trip Meeting Sept 26 in Cafeteria at 6:00 pm

September 5, 2012

Dear Parent and Student,

We are pleased to announce an exciting trip coming the summer of 2013.  In June 2013 we will explore Costa Rica.  We will have the opportunity to visit San Jose, spend time in the Tortuguero Village, visit Tortuguero National Park, possibly take a canopy tour of the rainforest, visit the Arenal region-seeing the volcano, kayak on Lake Arenal, and enjoy the hot springs-go to the Vieja National Park, and spend time at the beach at Guanacaste and whitewater rafting.

The trip will be an action-packed, 10-day adventure.

I, Sheri Fritsch, have been taking over 40 students traveling each summer for the past 12 years. I recently retired from Whitefish Bay Schools where I taught Middle School and High School Special Education. Accompanying me will be Mr. Peacy, the 6th grade Science teacher and Jill Scharf, teacher in Theresa.

We have chosen EFTours for its stellar record of safety and accountability, along with giving a good tour for the money for the last 40 + years. They have offices throughout the world and are available 24/7 in time of need.  EF is accredited, which means that students can earn high school credit by going on the tour and completing associated course work. The tour includes round trip airfare, meals, hotels, entrance fees to select attractions and guided sightseeing.

Our leader to student ratio is 1 leader for 6 students.  In addition we will have an EF Tours tour director with us at all time. Many of the sites we will visit will also have a tour guide.

As you note with the quote, the quote has student and adult pricing. As with this year, we are inviting families to join us on this trip.  If you (adult) choose to go, you will have the opportunity to venture off on your own at times knowing that your student is in good hand with Mike, Jill and myself.

Included is an application full of information about EF Tours, the price quote, and itinerary. We will host a meeting soon to go over the benefits of taking an educational tour, fund raising ideas, and be available to answer any of your questions. In the meantime, you can visit and type the tour number 1185073 Group Leader Sheri Fritsch in the get started section.

Warm regards

Sheri Fritsch
