Dear Riley Parents, 
 
Dear families, Your student is invited to join me for a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience to Rome, Paris and Madrid in Spring of 2022!  Several members of the junior class cabinet, Matt Williams and Margaret Whitmer, have expressed interest in continuing the Riley tradition of a spring break travel experience to Europe in the spring of 2022. 
 
Riley students have travelled to France, Greece, Italy, England, Hungary, Germany, Austria and Croatia over the last decade at a great savings with EF tours! After hunkering down in Quarantine for over a year, we want to offer an amazing experience once again to travel, grow and learn by planning this trip for your student. 
 
I decided to offer this opportunity now to give students hope for a brighter future. While the world might feel like it's filled with uncertainty, I want to give families the chance to look ahead. And to make sure you feel confident making future travel plans, EF is offering a risk-free enrollment period that our group can take advantage of if we enroll now. 
 
We will be talking about all of the above and more at our online informational meeting on Wednesday, February 17th at 6:00 PM. Please join our meeting to hear all the details including the itinerary, dates, and cost of this trip. The meeting will also mark the official opening of enrollment! 
 
Please click here to RSVP https://bit.ly/3ruCNqG by Tuesday, February 16th to confirm your spot at the meeting. There are limited spots on this tour, so we would love to have you attend this meeting to learn more about this exciting opportunity! 
 
Thanks so much for joining us February 17!
