Students looking for support in Trash-a-Thon effort

-A +A
Loomis Grammar School students in the fifth, sixth and seventh grades will observe Earth Day, on Wednesday, April 22, by holding a Trash-a-Thon. The funds raised will go to a Loomis School Outdoor Education Scholarship Fund. The students are seeking sponsors for their labor and toil to clean the debris from the streets of Loomis. Each of the six classes will comb neighborhoods for an eyesore, bag it, and leave it on the street corner for volunteers to pick up. Monies will allow needy students in the sixth and seventh grades to participate in trips to the redwoods and the coast. In addition to helping their classmates, students will be able to earn prizes for their fundraising efforts. Loomis Grammar staff members are currently looking for volunteers to contribute sweat equity into building an outdoor education scholarship fund to help support some of their neediest families. To donate your time, sponsor a student, or contribute a small incentive prize, contact Kristine Sohrakoff at ksohrakoff@ loomis-usd.k12.ca.us or 652-1824 x218). The other teachers involved in the project are Melissa McCormick, Susan McQueen, Crystal Call, Emily Wiskus and Karen Acosta.
