Visual and Performing Arts College Fair – Washington, D.C.

Visual and Performing Arts College Fair – Due to an overwhelming response, there is no more room on the charter bus funded by the FCFA to the Visual and Performing Arts College Fair in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, October 31.  However, many parents have asked if they can drive up separately and join up with us in D.C.  The answer – ABSOLUTELY!!  We encourage you to please join the FCFA on this field trip.  Here is the FCFA itinerary; feel free to join us in any or all of these activities:

9:00 a.m. – depart Henrico for Washington, D.C.  (those taking the FCFA bus – we will leave from the main parking lot in front of the school!!)

11:00 a.m. – arrive Union Station – enjoy lunch and shopping from 11:00-12:20

12:20 p.m. – meet up with FCFA chaperones at meeting place in Union Station to board bus
