Get Togethers

Throughout the year the Senior Council hosts a variety of events that gives seniors the opportunity to spending time together as a class. These events change each year. In the past we have held car washes, BBQs, bonfires, holiday dinners, donut Wednesdays, and the senior auction. Seniors are encouraged to participate in as many events as possible.

Senior Trip

Each spring the senior class departs from the Northern Atlantic to warmer climes in sunny Orlando, Florida, for four days of exhilarating fun.

2020 Senior Trip Dates: April 2 - 6, 2020
Location: Orlando, Florida
Cost: $1165.00 (includes airfare, hotel, travel insurance, multiple park tickets, coach bus transportation)

Senior Trip Payment Schedule:

Monday, Aug. 26, 2019 - $265.00

Seniors are given the opportunity to participate in this senior-only event. We enjoy three nights at a Disney hotel, passes to all the Disney parks, and an exclusive pass to "Grad Bash" at Universal Studios, which lasts all night. Universal opens their doors to graduating classes from all over the country to enjoy amazing DJs, award-winning entertainers, and the thrill of riding rides until 3 a.m.

Supervision:
During the trip, students will be in contact with chaperones at all times via cell phone: however, they are given liberal freedom to be in the Disney Parks and the hotel. Regular attendance is taken via photo texts during the entire time we are in theme parks. Chaperones are always available to students; however, they are not physically with chaperones at all times. If you feel that your senior needs direct supervision this is not the best opportunity for them. All Landmark School policies will be in affect throughout this school-sponsored event and should a violation occur, the student may be sent home at the parent/guardian's expense.
