We are planning on late April early May to go on our Jr. High Des Moines Trip.  Each student will need to raise $45-50 for the trip.  This includes fee for Living History Farms and 2 meals.  We encourage students to do jobs to earn money instead of parents paying for it.  Ideas include…bake sale, raking leaves, helping grandparents.
