  • Eighth Grade College Visit Day

    Posted by Samantha Eck at 10/5/2016 2:00:00 PM

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    On Friday, October 28 all eighth grade students will visit post-secondary schools. We are proud to provide this opportunity for our students, as it is the only time in grades K-12 that an entire grade level is given this experience. As a result of this trip, all students will have a frame of reference when counselors, teachers, and parents talk about education after high school. Further, our goal is to future orient students so that the present is more relevant. We believe that future focused students will take academics and behavior more seriously.  

    This is a full day excursion, and therefore, we need to plan for lunch. The most efficient way to get the lunch count is to collect your choice electronically.   We ask that you commit to packing or buying on October 28. Click here to make your selection. If you are not able to complete the survey, your child will be given access and supported with the lunch choice survey over all lunch periods. Students may pack or buy. Please take the lunch choice survey by Friday, October 7.  Payment is due Friday, October 14. You will receive a reminder closer to our trip date that will state your packing/buying commitment and more details about the trip.

     Menu Option ($2.65*)

    • Italian Sub (lettuce & tomato on the side)
    • Packaged Apple Slices
    • Carrot Sticks
    • Whole Grain 1.5 oz. Chocolate Chip Cookie Wrapped
    • 16.9  oz. Bottled Water

    Thank you for your prompt attention to this planning step. Please contact Lynette Huber, 8th Grade Counselor, or June Lutz, School Counseling Secretary, at 898-5631 with your questions or concerns. 

    Sincerely,

    Lynette Huber
    Landisville Middle School
    School Counselor

    *Free/Reduced Prices: Free and reduce meals will be honored for this trip. Reduce meals cost $0.40.
