Please join us and IN-N-OUT Burger for a fun family night Monday, April 23, 5 to 6 pm, benefiting the 6th grade 3 day/2 night field trip to the Catalina Island Marine Institute, CMIT. CMIT is a non-profit educational program which affords students an extraordinary learning experience in hands on marine biology and island ecology. Hiking through pristine island habitat, snorkeling the clear Catalina waters, chasing a marine fish, picking up a crawling octopus, petting a shark, doing a plankton tow and following a pod of bow riding dolphins, are a just few of the experiences that immerse students in the marine and island environments.
This event is part of a year long fund-raising effort to raise the $7557. for our thirty-two 6th graders to have the opportunity to participate in this wonderful end of the year trip. This includes student’s camp fee, all activities, all meals, Catalina Express transportation, lodging, teacher chaperones, and supplies. 75% funds realized from this event will directly support the field trip. The remaining 25% of the funds go to the IN-N-OUT Child Abuse Foundation. Please help make this enriching trip a reality for these students while enjoying a lovely evening with friends and neighbors on our charming campus.
Tickets are advance purchase through the school office weekdays 8 am to 4 pm, through noon April 18.
