Anchorage Here We Come!

Raised by 127 people in 2 months
All Iditarod Area School District fourth graders have an annual six day trip to  Anchorage every April. This trip enables them to see a large city, take in the sights, order from a menu in restaurants, and learn how to navigate city streets. We visit the zoo, the Anchorage museum, and participate in a sporting event such as skating, bowling, or extreme trampolining. We drive to Wasilla to Iditarod Headquarters and visit a local kennel. Then we head off to Seward to the Sealife Center and stop in nearby Girdwood at the Wildlife Conservation Center. One day is spent shopping for family and friends and relaxing before heading home. 

All seven schools raise funds for this trip because round trip airfares are expensive from interior Alaska to Anchorage. We stay in either hotels or rent houses for the week. This year we have 31 people from the district attending, and six people from our school. All food, housing, travel, and entry fee expenses must be raised by the students and their families. So far our students have had a very successful art auction and bake sale to raise funds, and plan to hold a pasta and desert dinner for the community. 

Our plane tickets cost $500 per person, ground transportation is approximately $450 before taxes, lodging can be as high as $1000 for the week, based on room sharing; meal purchases averaged approximately $40 a day per person last year, and entry fees to all venues total $75-100 per person. 

Our funds are need at least one month before the trip so we have two weeks to raise what we need. This enables our district travel coordinator to have plenty of time to arrange lodging, transportation, and any appropriate financial documents we need while on the trip. 

Thank you so much for your support. We see so many people during the Iditarod Sled Dog Race in March who ask us how they can help our school. We volunteer for the race every year and friends, families, and fans of mushers appreciate what we do to support their race teams. This is an opportunity for those interested in supporting us to do so. Working as a team we can do this!
