We have been given an opportunity to be a part of a fundraiser for our academy in partnership with Mt Waddington's Outdoors. Mt Waddington's is hosting The Reel Rock Film Tour at the G.W. Graham Theatre on October 3, at 7:00 PM. We will be one of the outdoor groups setting up a table to sell baked goods during the intermission. We are looking to raise money for a larger three-to-four-night canoe trip at the end of May. This is something new to the program that we did not offer last year. We will probably be doing some other fundraising events throughout the school year. Any money beyond what we need for the canoe trip will be put towards a legacy fund to help underprivileged students be a part of the academy in future years.
12 students have told me they would like to come to the film night and have volunteered to bring a two dozen piece dessert. Please ask your son or daughter if they are one of the students who have volunteered and make sure you are ok with them doing so. Students from outdoor programs will get into the films for a discounted price of $7.00. We would love to see some parents coming out for the evening as well. I have attached the trailer for the evening's films below, as well as a link to the event advertisement on the Mt. Waddingtons website. The views expressed in these films are not necessarily our views within the academy and we are not saying that this night is mandatory. The films are not rated and we have not previewed them. If you feel that you would rather your son or daughter not come to this film night, please have them let me know by Monday at the latest.
Unfortunately the timing of this night is not great as we will be returning from our first camping trip earlier that day. That being said, we really don't want to miss out on this opportunity to mingle, help out the local outdoor community, and raise some funds for our program. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to send us an email.
On a different note. Our first one-night campout is coming up on Wednesday, Oct 2. Please check with your students, and on this site, for a detailed trip outline on Monday night. Students will be practicing their camp-stove-cooking on Monday at school and planning their tent group supper that same day.
