Tillamook Junior High School’s fundraising activities for the 8th grade class trip to Washington, D.C. and New York City next June: “We are working hard to raise funds for these kids, many are struggling to pay for the trip, and we want to ensure that every student that wants to, can experience this amazing trip,” said Nikki Brown, 8th grade parent. Here’s a summary of upcoming events:
BARVIEW JETTY STORE PIZZA CARDS – Pizza cards are on sale in partnership with the Barview Jetty store! Students are selling $25 and $50 gift cards good for whole pizzas. A portion of sales will go to support students as they raise funds to pay for their trip. To place an order, text: (503) 812-8470 or find an 8th grader near you. The order due date has extended through January 9th, and cards will be ready for distribution starting on January 13th.
Movie Night for 6th-8th graders is on January 13th at Tillamook Junior High School! All TJHS students are welcome to attend. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m., with the movie starting at 6:30 p.m. Concessions will also be available for purchase! A donation of $5 per person is suggested.
