Skinner scholars to go to D.C. in 2014

Skinner 6th and 7th grade students have a remarkable opportunity next year – the Spring of 2014 – to participate in a week long field trip to Washington D.C., Gettysburg and Philadelphia to experience the 8th grade social studies curriculum by seeing the history, geography, economics and civics of the United States first hand..  This field trip is open to all Skinner scholars and is an unbelievable opportunity for this year’s 6th and 7th graders (next year’s 7th and 8th graders).

Students are eligible to register up to 90 days before the trip but are encouraged to get involved now so they can participate in school wide fundraising for the next two years to help defray some of the trip’s costs.  Currently there are 28 students signed up.

If people in the community would like to help Skinner scholars afford the 2014 trip, they should watch for our fundraising activities, make a direct donation and/or hire a middle school student for yard work, babysitting, housecleaning or other odd job, paying with a tax deductible donation to Skinner Middle School.
