8th Grade DC Trip

8th Grade DC Trip - 2019
Posted on 09/28/2018

Mrs. Lesley Wasko, Mrs. Jen Wilson-Tucker and Mr. Mike Paone are this year’s eighth-grade trip advisors.  They are in the process of planning the eighth grade trip to Washington, D.C.  This trip will depart from Keene on Thursday morning, April 18th and will return on Monday evening, April 22, 2019.

Appropriate behavior and academic performance are necessary for participation.  These expectations have been reviewed with your child in advisory.  Fundraising activities are underway and are designed to help students offset the cost of the trip.  Deserving students with major financial needs are also given the opportunity to earn additional monies by volunteering for jobs at KMS before and after school.  Students who show a desire to earn money by fundraising or volunteering will be getting the assistance they need to go on the trip.

The first fundraiser, magazine sales, ended on September 13, 2018.  Look for more fundraising opportunities in the beginning of October.

A $99.00 deposit and registration are due to World Strides by October 26, 2018.  If you have questions, please contact Mrs. Wasko (

There will be an informational meeting at 6:30 p.m. in the KMS Auditorium on September 27
th before the Open House.  See you there!

Mrs. Wasko, Mrs. Wilson-Tucker & Mr. Paone
