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 (Karna Johnsen at email@example.com and Monica Burch at firstname.lastname@example.org ) COMPLETED

As the above Group Events occur and the net proceeds are verified by the school’s student activities treasurer, Kim Jeronimo (email@example.com ) and our 8th grade treasurer, Karen Mlynarski (firstname.lastname@example.org ), we will update the amounts.
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):
50/50 RAFFLE (Mimi Jacobs at email@example.com) ONGOING THROUGH DECEMBER 18
COUPON BOOKS (Janet Petrie at firstname.lastname@example.org ) PERIOD TBD
GERTRUDE HAWK (Samantha Bertelson at email@example.com and Juliet Yung at firstname.lastname@example.org ) PERIOD TBD
SCRIPS GIFT CARDS (Emily Childs at email@example.com and Jansyn Tropea at firstname.lastname@example.org ) ONGOING THROUGH SPRING (actual end date set by school and tbd)
Our 8th grade treasurer, Karen Mlynarski (email@example.com ), keeps the master spreadsheet of costs and credits for each 8th grader. Karen works directly with Kim Jeronimo, the school’s student activities treasurer, who collects and distributes all funds related to our 8th grade fundraisers. Karen Mlynarski 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 DC trip.
We are working on scheduling an 8th grade parent meeting at which time we will be able to tell you the total cost of the Washington DC trip for each student and, of course, give an update of where we stand after the first few fundraisers of the year have been completed. Please stay tuned for the date and time for the upcoming 8th grade parent meeting!
If you have any questions related to 8th grade fundraising, please feel free to contact Lisa Lavelle-Cunningham at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you all for your efforts!
