2025 M100 UNIVERSAL TRIP - FEEDBACK NEEDED

Next year, the M100 is planning a “Universal” trip to Florida! “Universal” is in quotes because there are currently two options available to us.

  • We take the trip in late April or May and travel to Universal Studios.

  • We take the trip in June after school lets out for the summer so that the brand new “Epic Universe” park opens. This would make us one of the first groups to visit the new park!

Please fill out the following survey by the end of the day TUESDAY, MAY 21 to provide your feedback on the trip. I will be meeting with the trip company this week to select dates for the trip so we can begin planning and fundraising.


(In order to prevent multiple responses, you will be required to sign in to Google to complete this survey. If you are unable to access or complete the form, please email kevin.kwaku@bisd.net with your preference of the two selections above.)
