8th Grade Washington DC Trip
Many thanks to our fantastic teachers and staff that took time away from their families to act as chaperones to our 8th grade class on their trip to Washington DC earlier this week.  The 8th graders had an amazing time seeing the sights and were lucky enough to have a private visit with Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayer.
Additional thanks to the families that donated money to our Angel Fund that ensured all students were able to participate in this fantastic trip.  6th, 7th & 8th Grade families should look for the MANNA Fundraising table at Back to School Day in August because the PTO will be sponsoring this fundraiser where you can purchase gift cards throughout the year and the profits go DIRECTLY TO YOUR STUDENTS WASHINGTON DC TRIP ACCOUNT.  Start saving in 6th grade and you will have three years to earn the money needed.
