Coming feed will raise funds for sixth-graders' experience


Dates for a getaway that brings together students from Nespelem and Lake Roosevelt schools are set for May and a fundraiser is planned for April.

The Grand Coulee Dam School District board set dates for the Tall Timber Ranch trip for sixth-graders from Nespelem Elementary and from Lake Roosevelt Elementary at its meeting Monday night.

The sixth graders will go to the Leavenworth retreat for three days and two nights of adventure and physical testing.

The trip, May 18-20, is later than usual this year, and is funded in part by the districts, the Johnson O’Mally program and proceeds from a upcoming Rotary Club spaghetti feed.

Rotarians are raising funds through the April 16 spaghetti feed, which will be held in the Coulee Dam Town Hall community room. Hours for the spaghetti feed are 4:30 – 7 p.m.

Ticket costs for the Rotary event are $10 for individuals, and $25 for families.

The Tall Timbers trip allows the sixth-graders to experience a number of outdoor activities and allows them to develop friendships between students from the two schools.

The students also help the Rotarians to put on the spaghetti feed, providing another opportunity to work together and learn about community service.

The school board was told that it would have more details on the trip at the next meeting.

Tickets are on sale by Rotarians and, soon, by sixth-graders themselves.

There are two classes of sixth graders at Lake Roosevelt Elementary totaling 51 students and Nespelem has eight sixth graders. It hasn’t been determined how many will go on the trip.
