Tips To A Great Trip To Dc 07

  1. 1. Tips to a Great Trip to Washington DC Spring Hill Behavioral Expectations for our Summer Trip
  2. 2. Tip 1 : Always be Positive  Things on trips do not always go as planned  You will not find everything on our trip super interesting  Some people may get on your nerves Tip: Always remain positive and remember that this is an opportunity of a lifetime. Your attitude will determine how you will remember this trip.
  3. 3. Tip 2: Be on Time  Please bring a watch and be responsible for being at certain places at scheduled times  Report to your chaperone for head counts  Follow the lights out procedure  Be on time for breakfast. Sorry…..no sleeping in  Being late can cause the entire group to be late for the ENTIRE day Tip: Watch the Clock and check your schedule (when not sure check with your chaperone)!
  4. 4. Tip 3: Stay with your group  Always stay with the group in all areas!  Buddy up with some one even to go to the restroom!  Never leave the floor of the hotel without a chaperone  Do not talk with people outside of our tour. Use common sense Tip 3: There is safety in numbers. We are in this together so let’s stick together!
  5. 5. Tip 4: Think Safe and Act Safe  There is no need to run, jump, climb anywhere on this trip  Respect the monuments with dignity and pride. There will be some places that will require us to be quiet (as a mark of respect)  The hotel rooms, bus, and planes are not personal jungle gyms  Please be careful in the pool. Tip 4: If you think it is wrong or unsafe. Just don’t do it!
  6. 6. Tip 5: Please Eat and Get Your Rest!  Please eat something at every meal (yes….even breakfast)  Please bring a water bottle with you on sightseeing trips  Do not overeat to the point you are going to make yourself sick  Please get to bed by 11. The days will be long and we don’t want you dragging! Tip 5: Get plenty of food, water, and rest to make it through each day
  7. 7. Tip 6: Take Care of Yourself  Please each day:  Shower  Brush Teeth  Use deodorant  Take medication that you might need  Follow SHMS dress code Tip 6: Be a responsible young adult and have respect for the people around you
  8. 8. Tip 7: Respect the Adults  Please listen to instructions from all Teachers, Chaperones, and Tour Guides  When you have a question for a tour guide.. raise your hand and be patient  Please do not talk when tour guides are telling the history of a monument or place Please respect the people who are trying very hard to make your trip enjoyable !
  9. 9. Tip 8: Be responsible for your Personal Property  Keep an eye on your camera, money, and personal items.  If you feel that you can’t do this…ask a chaperone to hold items for you  Pack for a four day trip… not a two week trip  Mark your personal items with some type of ID tape
  10. 10. Tip 9 Money Issues  Do not spend all of your money in one place  Create a daily budget with your parents. Once you spend your limit for the day…..STOP!  A chaperone will be glad to hold money for you  Travel Checks or Visa Gift Cards might be wise if you are poor with handling cash  Keep your wallets in your front pockets and your purses safely secure to your body!  How much money????? I recommend no less than $100 and no more than $250. It all depends on what type of a shopper you are.
  11. 11. Tip 10 Keep in Contact with Your Parents  Please call home every night to let your parents know we had a safe day  However, I strongly recommend you buy one with additional minutes for the trip. We will allow cell phones (TRAC Phones from Wal-Mart are great!). Ask a chaperone to use a phone if you are out of minutes.  Take time to send a few postcards home during the trip
  12. 12. Tip 11 Picture Taking  Don’t take all your pictures in one day and in one spot  Please be aware of picture taking rules at certain locations  Throwaway cameras are a lot easier then digital cameras to keep up with  Bring a battery charger with you for digital cameras. Batteries are very expensive at tourist traps. So is film and throw away cameras.  Mrs. Heffington and Mr. Manes will be taking LOTS of pictures on this trip. We will be putting them in a slide show that you can run on a computer. (We will charge a small fee to meet my costs.)
  13. 13. Tip 12 Airport Security and Other Security  Do not mess with security!!! Do not crack jokes and do not complain about waits.  Stay together and do what is asked of you by security  These men and women are only trying to keep us safe. We will show them the respect they deserve!
  14. 14. Tip 13 In Case of an Emergency  We will give each child a card with our cell phone numbers and the numbers of other chaperones in case (the unlikelihood) you get lost  We want your parent contact numbers on this card  These numbers will be placed in your ID badge provided by the company  Please take the time to place id tags on all your bags. The company will provide us with id tags. But, a backup personal one will not hurt.  I can be responsible for passing out medication if your parents feel more comfortable with me doing that.
  15. 15. Tip 14 Have a Blast  Don’t worry…..be happy!!!  Demonstrate to the nation what great students we have in Bentonville!  You represent an entire community…Do it well!  We hope you enjoy the trip!!!!!!!!
