7th Grade Fall Trip 2011

Dear Seventh Grade Parents,
The Grade 7 team philosophy behind the Fall Trip is to give students an opportunity to
get to know each other as well as learn about our host country, Hungary, introducing an
important aspect of the school’s Mission, Vision, and Values. The beginning of the
school year is an ideal time to develop friendships for new and returning students. All of
the 7th grade team teachers are looking forward to a wonderful trip with your child!
We are happy to announce that the Grade 7 trip, scheduled for September 14-16, will
again take us to the northern shore of Lake Balaton. We will stay at the Zanka Children
and Youth Center, (Tel: 87 468 180 and 87 468 084). Teachers will have mobile
telephones in case of emergency:

Respect Yourself, Others and the Environment The Fall Trips are an extension of the AISB school environment, therefore the same set of expectations and behaviors are in place. The behaviors and expectations have been repeated below to include language explicit to the Fall Trip setting. One important goal of an AISB education is to teach students social responsibility. Social responsibility is based upon respect for oneself, respect for others and respect for the environment. Socially responsible Fall Trip behaviors include: • Following all rules and expectations • Working cooperatively in groups • Treating self, others, and the environment with respect and • Being where you belong • Cleaning up after yourself • Being on time to meals, activities and meeting points • Coming prepared to learn something new • Actively participating in activities • Being determined to do one’s best • Moving in a safe and respectful manner If a student breaks the trust implicit in the “Respect Yourself, Others and the Environment” motto of the Fall Trips, and is sent home, then the parent(s) will be required to pick him/her up from the trip location. The Fall Trips are an intensive community building experience for students and teachers alike and therefore we encourage students to use cell phones and Ipods according to the guidelines set by the teachers. Please sign that you have read and understand the expectations and agree to adhere to them while on the Fall Trip.
