Sun­ny­side Stu­dents Fi­nanc­ing Trip To Capi­tol

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Made­line Mul­hol­land Stanstead

Fifth and sixth grade stu­dents at Sun­ny­side school are plan­ning an overnight trip to Ot­tawa in June. The stu­dents will be vis­it­ing Par­lia­ment and the RCMP sta­bles. Teach­ers Tammy Mosher and Dan Au­coin, with the help of their stu­dents and par­ents, have been head­ing up the fundrais­ing cam­paign.

The trip will cost ap­prox­i­mately $230 per stu­dent. There are 27 stu­dents, so the kids have to raise $6,210. Ac­cord­ing to Miss Mosher, the stu­dents and the par­ents have been very en­thu­si­as­tic and have demon­strated a great deal of com­mit­ment to en­sur­ing that enough money is raised to al­low ev­ery stu­dent to at­tend.

Par­ents such as Dan Waller and Brenda Til­ton have found cre­ative ways to do­nate. Dur­ing the Win­ter Fun Day fes­tiv­i­ties the Til­ton’s pro­vided pony rides and raised $176 for the class trip., while Dan Waller took a Po­lar Plunge and do­nated his $50 prize to the class trip.

The stu­dents are plan­ning more ac­tiv­i­ties in the up­com­ing months, as only half the money has been raised to date. Both teach­ers and stu­dents would ap­pre­ci­ate the sup­port of the com­mu­nity and hope to see a great turn out at their events. It is im­por­tant to re­mem­ber that we are sup­port­ing chil­dren who have com­mit­ted them­selves to fi­nanc­ing their own trip. Please en­cour­age their sense of in­dus­try and re­source­ful­ness.
