Students asking for help

Pulaski Middle School’s eighth grade class is calling upon the community to help make a trip to the nation’s capital possible.
Currently, eighth grade teachers at PMS are in the process of organizing a field trip for their students to Washington, D.C., in June.
Their plans include giving the students the opportunity to visit various historical places, such as the Washington Monument, Smithsonian Museums, the Vietnam War Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, the Lincoln Memorial, the World War II Memorial, and the Jefferson Memorial.
Organizers have set the cost for the trip for each student at $200, which includes meals, tickets to various activities, transportation and hotel accommodations.
As of now, organizers say there are 150 students who are interested in participating in this trip. However, they have estimated that more than half of those students are unable to afford the total cost of the trip.
Despite this fact, the eighth grade teachers do not plan to leave any students behind due to their inability to pay because, they said, they realize that for many of their students, this is the only opportunity they will have to visit Washington, D.C., and experience its educational sites.
That’s where the help of the community comes into the picture.
Organizers of this trip are asking for local citizens to help make a student’s trip possible by either sponsoring their trip or making a contribution toward a student’s trip.
Sponsorships and contributions may be made in person at Pulaski Middle School, or may be mailed to the school at 500 Pico Terrace, Pulaski, VA, 24301.
All donations are tax deductible and a receipt will be sent to donors. If sent by mail, donors are asked to make a note on their check that it is for a Washington, D.C., sponsorship.
Organizers are requesting that all donations be turned in by Friday, Dec. 5, in order to allow the students to figure out how much money they each need to raise for the remainder of the cost.
Questions may be directed to Rebecca Harriman at rharrima@pcva.us or to Lara Lovell at llovell@pcva.us or 643-0861.
