7th Grade Springfield Trip

March 1st, 2019

We are excited to announce the upcoming trip to Springfield for our 7th grade students. 7B will head to Springfield on June 3rd, and 7A will head there on June 4th. On this trip, students will tour the old Capitol building, the new Capitol, the Lincoln Museum and Lincoln’s tomb.

Starting Monday, March 4th, parents can pay for this trip. The total cost of the trip is $50, which covers transportation and dinner. I am happy to report that the cost last year was $72, and we were able to reduce the charge for this year.

We are willing to work with any parent who needs help with covering these costs. Parents can pay in installments as well. Parents will be able to pay in person or through Skyward.

Furthermore, there is an optional popcorn fundraiser that will begin next week for students. Students can raise money to pay this trip through the fundraiser and lower your out-of-pocket expenses, or completely pay for the trip.

It is my goal to have every 7th grade student attend this trip. Seeing the Capital building and the other locations is both fun and educational. Please let us know if you need any support with paying for this trip.
