The Brookside Middle School Academic Club is excited to announce that this year's end of the year trip will be to Philadelphia
& Gettysburg! This end of year trip is open to any middle school 7th or 8th grade student who receives a 3.0 GPA for the first semester of the school year. As an exciting transition opportunity and incentive, we will also offer this trip to 6th grade students at Brookside Intermediate School. 6th grade students will need to earn a 3.0 GPA for the first semester of the school year and earn behavioral clearance (no egregious behaviors or excessive office referrals). You may recall that 6th graders had an opportunity to go on this trip when we were housed in one building (former Sheffield Middle School).
Please reserve April 29-May 1, 2020 on your calendar for this year's trip.
Please note the following dates throughout the 2019-2020 school
September 17-October 8: (extended to October 10)-- Fall Bulb & Flower Seed Sale- first fundraiser of the school year for Philadelphia/Gettysburg. All students may participate. Forty percent (40%) or all sales will be credited to each student's account. Students who sell earn money off of their individual trip! Online ordering: ==sale has closed==
**Be sure to include the student name in the comments section of the online order so the student gets credit!**
The first fundraiser will kick-off on Tuesday, September 17th
and will run through October 8th.
Students who participate are given this opportunity to reduce their
personal trip cost (40% of all sales towards their trip). Note: Fundraising
