Mothers of Monroe’s 8th graders find sweet ending for class fundraisers
Starting a year ago, the students, after deciding that they’d like to see the nation’s capital, planned and conducted a variety of fundraisers to cover the $5,500 cost of the class trip.
Two days ago in the Monroe Town Hall, she was teaching MCS parents how to make eye-catching baked goods, such as an edible mouse made out of a Hershey’s Kiss, a long-stemmed chocolate-covered cherry and slivered almonds.
Dimas and her fellow moms agreed that what they learned from Fogg could help generate some spending money for the upcoming eighth-grade class trip or might be left as a “nest egg” for a future group of MCS students.
She said the current eighth-graders will fly out of Boston to Virginia, where they’ll stay at a hotel, and from June 3 through June 7, they’ll take a commuter train from Arlington, Va., to Washington, D.C., daily. Dimas said while in D.C., the group will meet with U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, adding that the students are eager to see firsthand what they’ve been studying in the classroom.
“We are there” as to financing the trip, Dimas said before returning her attention to Fogg, who was displaying a multi-use pan that could be used for baking a lot of delicious stuff.
