Students Raise Funds for Field Trip

Get your tickets here!

The life lesson of working for something you want (and not having it just handed to you) was recently tackled successfully by grades K-4, 7-8. They made plans to go to the Southwick Zoo in the spring, but even such a modest field trip is expensive; there is no leeway in our penny-pinching budget for “extras”.

So, the classes planned a fundraising evening. By putting on a delightful series of music, short dramas, jokes, and the grand finale: a “puppet” show, the classes were able to provide a delightful evening’s entertainment for a bargain rate: $5 per person or $10 per family. Meanwhile, the seventh and eighth grade students sold refreshments: popcorn, hot chocolate, and baked goods. After lots of hard work, they raised an amazing $500! Congratulations!

We look forward to seeing what the fifth and sixth grade class come up with to fund-raise for their portion of the trip (they joined the project too late to participate in this evening’s entertainment).
