PRACTICE SCHEDULE

Ř      Participating in the Exchange VII is like participating in a team effort. Our meetings are practice sessions so that when we depart for Europe, our team is ready to participate completely and successfully in our team effort. Just like athletes need to attend practice sessions in order to perfect their skills, participants in the Exchange Program must attend all of our practice sessions—which are our meetings. Missing more than 2 meetings will result in a failing grade for the program. Missing more than 4 meetings will result in a cancelled trip.

Ř      All students are expected to attend every practice session. Parents are welcome to attend all practice sessions if they wish. Absences from practice sessions will present serious problems for the students, the coordinators, and for the successful completion of the program itself. Therefore, students are required to attend all sessions. If you are absolutely unable to attend, we ask that students report to the coordinators the next day to get missed assignments. Absent students will have to make up time before or after school.

Ř      Parents will be required to attend certain practice sessions so that they will be properly informed about the program, make payments as scheduled, sign certain documents and contracts etc.

Ř      Topics for each meeting will be listed in a handout, which will be distributed during the first meeting, our official practice.
