8th Grade Fundraising


Class of 2016

There will be a meeting for all 8th grade parents on Monday, February 8, 2016 at 6:30pm in Room 315.  At this meeting, Mr. Philips will provide us with the details of the Washington DC trip, which will be June 8-10, 2016, including the total cost per student. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have regarding the trip. Please make every effort to attend this very important meeting.
 50/50 TOTAL SALES:   $5,670


As you may already be aware, each year the 8th grade class at Bedminster School holds fundraisers throughout the year to help defray the costs to each 8th grade student’s family for their end of the year, 3 day trip to Washington DC.  While this trip is arranged through the school and the chaperones are teachers from our school, it is the responsibility of the parents of each 8th grader to pay that student’s pro rata share of the total cost of the trip.  The school does not pay for this trip. 



We organize a number of Group Events, the net proceeds of which are divided equally among the total number of 8th graders and credited against their portion of the cost due for the trip.  The Group Events for this year are the following (with chairpersons noted in parentheses): 


FALL FEST, 9/12/15 (Melissa Kircher at melissakircher@yahoo.com)

As the above Group Events occur and the net proceeds are verified by the school’s student activities treasurer, Kim Jeronimo (kjeronimo@bedminsterschool.org ) and our 8th grade treasurer, Mimi Brown (marieelena_brown@yahoo.com), amounts will be updated.



Additionally there are Individual Events in which each 8th grade student’s efforts will be credited directly and only to that student.  Thus, each student will have a different amount they earn to be credited against the cost of the trip, depending on their efforts.  Those individual events are as follows (with chairpersons listed in parentheses):

Our 8th grade treasurer, Mimi Brown (marieelena_brown@yahoo.com), keeps the master spreadsheet of costs and credits for each 8th grader.  Mimi works directly with Kim Jeronimo, the school’s student activities treasurer, who collects and distributes all funds related to our 8th grade fundraisers.  Mimi Brown will be the person to contact if you would like an update on how much your student has credited against the costs of the Washington, D.C. trip.
