Even though the school year is starting to wind down, the students of the 7th grade class at Bluff View Intermediate school are ramping up their efforts to raise money for their 8th grade Washington D.C. trip.
“They’ll be taking the trip in June of 2016,” said Chad Abram.
As one of the parents who helped orchestrate the trip and plan the stops along the way, Abram is very familiar with how much a trip like this will cost. “It’s about $1,200 a child, which is why we’re trying our best to offset some of the costs with fundraising,” stated Abram.
So far, the students have hosted a bowling tournament and a car wash. In addition, they have sold PdC Blackhawk yard signs. Their newest fundraiser is set to take place on Saturday, May 30, at the Prairie du Chien Country Club at 10 a.m. Students Brandon Hanger and Maggie Dobbs are encouraging anyone and everyone to come support their class.
