COOL TRIP OPPORTUNITY: If you are interested in the 2020 Spring Break trip to Europe, you can find the general info here: Spring Break in Spain ’20. These trips are not cheap, but you have a lot of time to do some babysitting, save up, hit up grandparents for birthday or Christmas $$$, and plan ahead. There are even some scholarship opportunities, although they are very competitive. See Coach Douthit for more details. Talk to mom/dad and think about this cool opportunity. We’ll be asking for commitments in the coming weeks.
