    AP Biology Catalina Island Field Trip
     
    Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,

    The following is information regarding a planned field trip to Catalina Island for AP Biology students.  AP Biology has the unique opportunity to participate in an educational experience at the Catalina Island Marine Institute (CIMI) at Toyon Bay.  Catalina Island is located 26 miles off the coast of California, just west of Long Beach. The website of the camp is: www.cimi.org/cimitoyonbay.html. On the island we snorkel, participate in labs, and generally have an amazing time. Here is the itinerary and packing list.

    The trip is scheduled to take place from October 18-20, 2019. There are currently about 100 AP Biology students and 75 spots are available at Catalina. 

    The total cost of the field trip is $400 which includes everything except two meals on the trip out and the return trip. As we are leaving soon after returning from fall break, the entire payment is due September 6th, 2019. This payment is non-refundable. Payments can be made at the bookstore.

    The bookstore will begin accepting payments in mid-late August (I'll specify the exact date soon). Spots on the trip will be reserved on a first come first served basis as soon as the bookstore begins accepting payment.

    If you have any questions, please email me (Mike Davitt) at davitt.michael@cusd80.com and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.  

    Thank you very much,

    Mike Davitt
