The past two years we’ve tried to fill a bus of 7th and 8th graders for a Washington DC trip. It’s a select bunch we have to draw from (6th graders are excluded) and there’s a cost involved. Folks have to pay for it beyond the normal school costs and the kids usually have to pester their folks to let them go on the trip. There’s hemming and hawing to be done, negotiations about dishes and chores, allowances and souvenir money to discuss as well. Nevertheless, it must be tried.
It’s tough to do and you have to cancel ’em sometimes.
CMU has their bus about filled I’m told. The MAMSE bus . . . not so much. So with sadness we were informed that the MAMSE bus to Indy has been cancelled.
