Washington DC Chaperones: Mark Clear, Lonnie Davis, Julie Dirks, Chris Enochs, Cheryl Jansen, Kraig Klingsheim, Matthew Meyers, Stephanie Penick, Rick Shelford, Pastor John Stima, Jolene Werkhoven, and Laurie Fielder. Thank you for loading and unloading our luggage each time we switched hotels. Thank you for getting your people down for breakfast on time and supervising the students on the bus.
Thank you for setting great examples of how to listen to our guides and getting the most out of our trip.
Being on guard 24/7 for 7 days can be exhausting, but you made the trip enjoyable and memorable!
DC Chaperones You will be pleased to know that while the students were making lists of tips for the next class that will go to Washington DC they mentioned the following:
Bring less items; you must carry what you bring and buy with you.
Less stuff means less time in security.
Watch out for chaperones who try to put quarters in your hood before going through security.
Respect your chaperones. Don't annoy them.
Use only one towel. The towels in the bathroom are for everyone.
Take a shower at night or a quick shower in the morning. Pack up your stuff the night before so you can have breakfast.
Don't eat just whip cream for breakfast.
Drink some coffee if you think you will be a grouch.
Don't buy chicken seasoning at Jamestown. Airport security isn't sure what to do with it.
Only use your phone for pictures.
Don't use your phone during dinner.
If you use data, remember it costs money.
When you are visiting the White House, don't ask for the WIFI password. The Secret Service was not amused.
Bring socks and underwear (more than just one pair).
Drivers and chaperones for the corn maze.
The students had a great time!
Thank you for driving despite the muddy boots and ominous weather.
It was a fun time of bonding our school together.
