After months of planning, the 32 students in Enterprise Elementary's sixth grade have earned enough money to make a trip to the Oregon coast at no cost to the Enterprise School District.
The cost of the trip is $200 per student, and each student was responsible for raising their own funds, with the effort beginning last October. In addition to odd jobs, class projects included a recent bike-a-thon.
Sixth grade teachers Tori Christman and Pattie Finley will lead the group on its four-day trip April 21-24. In all, 10 chaperones will accompany the students.
Among planned stops are the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center, Multnomah Falls, touring a skyscraper, OMSI, the Oregon Zoo, Tillamook Cheese Factory, the Air Museum and the Oregon coast.
The teachers and the sixth-grade students would once again like to thank the parents, the community and everyone who helped with the bike-a-thon fund-raiser.
