Jr. High Des Moines Trip

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.

TRIP NEWS

Upcoming order dates are: October 30, November 13, November 27, December 11

 TRIP questions can be answered by Donna or Nicki at school on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday from 8:30 – 2:00.

TRIP Order form can be printed off the school website if you need one.

Orders need to be in the TRIP box in the school office or given to Donna Koopmans by 8:30 AM on order dates in your family envelopeNo late orders will be taken. Do not fax or call orders to my house – money needs to accompany orders or they will not be processed. Please try to remind your child to bring the order to their teacher or the office right away when they get to school, so that orders will not be forgotten or late.
