ITALY/GREECE TRIP ALMOST SOLD OUT!    

There are only four positions left for the Italy / Greece trip!  This once-in-a-lifetime trip is from March 12 - 22, 2008.  For ten glorious days, only 30 lucky students with their chaperones will visit the Parthenon, travel to the ancient site of the Olympic games,  sit in the ampitheatre of  Dionysos, and visit Olympia, the home of  the Greek  Gods.  Then, we will take an overnight cruise to Italy where we will visit Sorrento, Tuscany, Pompeii, Rome, Capri, and study the art in the Sistine Chapel and in the Vatican Museum.  It's an awesome trip, and it will be the last time that WHS visits Greece.  This trip is only for upperclassmen, as we have designed it as a "teaching tool" for our students.  See Mrs. Naungayan in R205 for details.    - S.
