2022 Washington, D.C. and New York, NY Trip

Dear Parents and Students,
I am excited to announce that I will lead a group of Heyworth Jr Sr High School students on a WorldStrides program to
Washington, D.C. and New York, NY. On this once-in-a-lifetime adventure, students will explore our nation's most
important historical sites and experience incomparable learning moments. This will be a trip that your child will be talking
about for years to come!
Your child will return home excited to tell you about:
 Seeing the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Declaration of Independence, and U.S. Constitution in person
 Visiting the 9/11 National Memorial at the World Trade Center site, dedicated to those who lost their lives on
September 11, 2001
 Finding inspiration from the heroes honored at D.C.'s war memorials and Arlington National Cemetery
I have chosen to travel with WorldStrides because of their exceptional service, their 50 years of experience, their safety
record, and their preventive measures that ensure learning occurs in a safe and fun environment. I will chaperone the
program with other teachers as needed, and throughout the program our group will be guided by a WorldStrides-certified
Course Leader. Since this is not a school sponsored trip, we will not be attending as representatives or
employees of the school.
Please read through all the details of this letter including a sample itinerary on the back of this page, and visit for more details about WorldStrides and our group's trip. If you have any questions, you
can contact me at (309)473-2822,or via There will be a virtual trip information meeting to
discuss this wonderful opportunity on February 11th at 7:00pm on Zoom. Please join at
I would love for your child to join us on this unforgettable trip!
