8th Grade Boat Cruise - "Night on the Bay"
Challenger has chartered a boat, Spirit of San Diego, through Flagship Cruises for a Friday evening.  Challenger students will have the boat all to themselves to have fun dancing to music led by a DJ.  Students who want to take a break from the music will have two other decks to relax and gaze up at the stars while cruising San Diego Harbor.  Dinner and snacks will include pizza, salad, cookies, breadsticks and soda.  Cost will include transportation, cruise and dinner.  It will be a evening of wonderful memories!
