Event Date and Time: 
Wednesday, October 7, 2015 - 6:45am to Friday, October 9, 2015 - 4:00pm

What and Where: CIMI (Catalina Island Marine Institute) is a hands-on outdoor discovery program located in Toyon Bay, Catalina Island.

Who and When: 5th graders will leave on Wednesday, October 7th., and return on Friday, October 9th, 2015

Departure and Return
Wednesday
Students and staff will meet at La Cañada Preparatory School at 6:45 a.m. The bus provided by Southwinds Transportation will leave promptly at 7:00 a.m., so it is very important that students arrive at the school early. Students and staff will be transported to Long Beach where a boat will be waiting to take them to Catalina. Check-in time for the boat is 8:30 a.m. Everyone must bring a sack lunch.
Friday
The boat will arrive back in Long Beach between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. The bus is slated to arrive at La Cañada Preparatory School at approximately 4:00 p.m. You may call the LCP office to find out the updated time of arrival.

Agenda
Attached is a brochure that explains the program in detail.

Luggage
Pack light. Keep two things in mind as you prepare: students need to carry their luggage a considerable distance from the boat to the cabins, and we are only going for two nights. Please ensure that warm sleeping bags are in a casing, nylon bags or some other type of covering that prevents unrolling. Students must have their name on all personal belongings and luggage.

How do I sign up?
If students wish to participate in the program, they must return the two (2) signed permission slips (CIMI’s permission form and LCP’s permission form which are attached to this notice) along with a check made payable to La Cañada Preparatory in the amount of $400 .00 by Friday, September 25th. This is an overnight trip and is not included in the pre-paid field trips. Space is limited.

Parent Meeting
On Wednesday, September 30, 2015, at 5:00 p.m., there will be an informational meeting for parents of students attending the CIMI trip in the Science Room – 203.
