8th Grade Dave and Busters Trip 11/30/23

Dear Parents/Caregivers, 

On Thursday, November 30th , our 8th Grade students will take their first 8th grade trip to Dave and Busters. We expect the memory of this day to be one student's treasure for years to come.  Please note that participation in all upcoming 8th grade activities is contingent upon behavior and overall academic standing. Factors that influence a child’s overall standing include lateness, class performance, behavior, effort, attitude, and grades. A conduct grade of N, for any reason, is  grounds for exclusion in such events.

The cost of the trip is $35.  This price includes a full buffet, unlimited soda, an unlimited video game card and a Power Card for each guest.The buffet will include Burgers, Crispy Chicken Bites, Cheese Pizza Bites, Mac & Cheese, Fries and unlimited soda. Payment and permission authorization for this trip  can be found via our website at www.is27.org under the School Store/Online Payments tab. Cash will not be accepted. The deadline to register is Wednesday, November 15th. There will be no exceptions made for payment or registering past this date.

To ensure that the trip is both enjoyable and safe for all students, several points must be emphasized.  Please review these points with your child (and save this notice for future reference):

  • Buses will leave Prall at approximately 10:30 A.M. Buses will depart Dave and Busters at 1:15. Students will be at regular dismissal at the end of the day, 2:00 P.M.

  • Students opting not to attend and/or students excluded from participation are expected to attend school on the day of the trip and will be given an alternative program. 

Should you have any questions, please call us at 718-981-8800 or email us. We are looking forward to a great day!

Yours truly,

Marissa Smith, Kim Sica, Camille Mainolfi, Alyssa Goldberg, and Matthew Genovese
