HS Student Trip to Peru Announced!

Hi Black River Students and Families,

I am so excited to announce that Black River high school students will have the opportunity to travel to PERU in 2025! While 2025 might seem like the distant future, it’s already time to start planning for this life-changing trip.

There is incredible growth that comes with seeing the world and exploring someplace new—and I’m excited to bring that opportunity to the high school students of Black River. Please join my informational meeting, where we’ll discuss:
● Where and when we’re going
● What we’ll see and do
● Travel logistics
● Flexible payment options that keep the tour affordable

I'll also share details about how to sign up (space is limited!) and answer any questions you might have about this experience.

Meeting Date: Tuesday, December 5th, at 5:30 PM
Location: Band Room (Lyceum)

Can't wait to see you there!
