8th Grade Donation

8th grade families are in charge of raising funds for the Graduation Reception and evening Party, in addition to a class gift to the school. Also, traditionally, 8th grade families raise money for the Cyndi Dailey-Smith & Howard B. Smith Scholarship Fund, which was created to ensure that all students are able to participate together in all field trips, including the end-of-the-year 3-day trip to New York City.

You can make a donation to the 8th Grade Class anytime.
