2020-21 Springfield and Washington, D.C. Parent Update

Dear 7th Grade Brooks Parents/Guardians,

Thank you to the parents who have already registered for one or both of our upcoming trips!

As a reminder, Janorise Robinson organizes both trips for Brooks. This allows the teachers to focus on teaching and meeting student needs. Please do not send payments or forms to the school! Payments for both trips are made on the WorldStrides website and all forms are electronically submitted. Please see the information below for details. Please don’t hesitate to email me with any questions.

If you weren't able to make it to the meeting or would like to review the slides, here's a link to the Parent PowerPoint Presentation. In addition, here are the next steps:

Financial Assistance:

  • For Washington, DC:
    • WorldStrides FLAG Scholarship - call 800-468-5899 and provide them with your income information and they will let you know how much you are awarded.
    • Once you receive the FLAG Scholarship amount, email Mrs. Robinson to begin the application process with Oak Park Township.
  • For Springfield and DC:
    • PTO Scholarships are available for both trips.

If you have questions, please send your inquiries to the following email links:

Thank you,

Janorise Robinson
