WHS FOUNDATION--College Trips (for juniors second semester)
The Woodside High School Foundation is providing a second college trip for the Class of 2020. The cost of transportation (charter bus) and a shared hotel room will be included. Priority is given to students with a 3.0 GPA or above. Students on the No Privileges list are ineligible for these trips.
 
The second trip will take place on April 25, 26, and 27.  Colleges that may be included on this trip: Sonoma State, UC Davis, CSU Chico, Sacramento State, CSU Stanislaus, Dominican University, and UC Merced.
 
This Google form should only be completed by the juniors who are interested and can commit to the dates of at least one trip. This form (accessible to WHS 11th grade students) must be submitted by March 25.  
 
Best attempts will be made to accommodate all WHS juniors who would like to attend, but because of numbers [unknown at this point], participation is not guaranteed.
