Dear Current 6th and 7th Grade Parents and Students,
As you might have heard, we offer a Washington, D.C. trip to 8th graders. As we plan ahead for upcoming years, we like to extend fundraising opportunities to students and families to assist with the cost of the trip which can run upwards of $1,000.00 (this year's trip cost $1,204.00 per student).
With that said, a great fundraising opportunity is right around the corner. There will be availability to work "Oak Fest 2014" to fundraise for the 8th grade D.C. trip for our current 6th and 7th graders. .
Students and/or their parents/guardians are welcome to work hours. If you are interested in volunteering at Oak Fest, a meeting will be scheduled in the Hille gym to sign up for available shifts. Watch the calendar for this information.
You MUST be present at this meeting to have the first opportunity to sign up for hours. We allow 7th grade parents to sign up first, and then 6th grade parents.
Jobs available include:
5K Run, Clean Up/Set Up, Parking, Floaters and Ticket Sales.
**The following jobs are available to adults 21 years of age and older: Beer Tent, Bean Bags, Bingo, Security and Raffles. A detailed description of each job will be available at the meeting.
Our volunteer coordinator, will contact you via e-mail approximately one week prior to the fest with specifics. If for any reason you are unable to attend the meeting, contact the parent volunteer afther the meeting you will then assign you to any remaining slots, if any are available.
Please note: Fundraising money that is earned bystudents/parents will be applied only to the Washington, D.C. trip when students are in their 8th grade year at Hille Middle School. Please be advised that if your student does NOT attend Washington, D.C. during his/her 8th grade year, any funds raised will revert to the school's general fundraising account. Money raised will not be reimbursed to individual students/families or be used towards registration or graduation fees.
