Middle School Fundraising Information

MIDDLE SCHOOL FUND RAISING


 Welcome middle school families! With all the changes that come with middle school, you are probably wondering why we have fund raising! "I pay my monthly pledge," you think, "so why should I contribute to middle school fund raising?"
Good question. Let's answer it! Our middle school students are privileged to some unique activities beyond field trips, and a one-time contribution of $40 per student is all that is needed. This is accomplished through the sale of Entertainment Books; or if selling is not your thing, a check for $40 will fund your child for the year's activities.

Our middle school students start the year with a Unity Retreat to Cedar Springs. There, students spend the day in various team building activities such as a climbing wall, zip line, and outdoor laser tag. These activities give them a chance to better know and bond with students from both grades. This retreat is paid for with fund raising dollars and ASB money.

One of the year's most anticipated events for students is Spring Fling, our big dinner-dance. Each year the seventh grade students help to greet, seat, and serve a meal to the eighth grade students. Following dinner, all middle school students enjoy the dance. The entertainment, decorations, and meal are funded 100% with your fund raising dollars.

The end-of-the-year Picnic is another special event for seventh and eighth grade students. Students go to a local park where they receive their yearbooks (before elementary students), play games, and are provided with lunch. The lunch and supplies of for games are funded 100% with fund raising dollars.

Before you think it possible, your student will be participating in eighth grade Moving Up ceremony (a.k.a. graduation)! The cost of decorations and cake for the ceremony and reception are funded 100% by fund raising dollars. Don't forget the after-party for our graduates which takes place in a secret location (don't worry, you will find out where before they leave- shhh!). This party is also funded 100% with your yearly fund raising contribution!

 As you can see, your contribution funds many activities your student will benefit from throughout the years in middle school and memories to last a life time. Your Middle School Fund Raising Committee will give you the details of this once a year fund raiser at orientation. Please help us make your child's time in middle school a time they will cherish!
