Bret Harte's 8th Grade Trip to DC

At the end of every school year, Bret Harte Elementary school (located in Hyde Park, Chicago, IL) sends their 8th grade class to see the nation's capitol: Washington DC! During this trip, students are able to learn about their country from the many historical sights and experiences that DC has to offer.  Our 8th graders look forward to this trip all year, and this year is no different.

However, like many great experiences tend to be, the trip is costly. Our 8th graders have already been working hard all year to raise money within and around the Bret Harte School and Hyde Park community through hosting car washes and selling different products. Now, we are hoping to reach even further! 

This is an amazing and extremely important opportunity for our students to become more informed about the nation in which we live. Please consider donating to our fundraiser which will go directly towards keeping the trip cost down for our awesome 8th graders. 

Thank you for your time, consideration, and donations!
