College Bound Cougars

We are the 8th Grade scholars of O'Keeffe School of Excellence, and we would like to take a trip to Washington DC for our 8th grade trip. O'Keeffe School of Excellence is on the South Side of Chicago. This year we went through a school turnaround and our students are always exhibiting excellence. As the 8th Grade Leadership team, we show leadership around the school and help others in need. We are taking on the responsibility of gathering the funds to ensure that our fellow scholars get to experience a fun and educational end to our elementary school years. It is important for us to travel to Washington DC, because many of us haven't had the chance to travel and expand our horizons. We want to learn new things about our nation and what better than going to the source, Washington D.C.! Please help us in our journey to explore all that our beautiful capitol has to offer. O'Keeffe thanks you for your support!
