If you missed it last year, you have another chance to enter your kid for $5/raffle ticket into Rombout’s Raffle to raise money for the 8th Grade Washington DC Trip. The prize of this raffle will be a ride to school in a fire truck driven by the City of Beacon Fire Department and Slater Chemical Fire Company. Your child could be picked up at home - in a fire truck - and driven to school.
One kid from each of the 4 elementary schools in the Beacon City School District will be selected as winners (South Avenue, Glenham, J. V. Forrestal and Sargent). Flyers went home in the little kid’s folders, so fill those out and send in money with your tickets ($5/ticket or 3 tickets for $10)! There is no limit as to how many tickets you can buy.
If you want to buy several raffle tickets and need to print more raffle forms/tickets, you can print out the raffle form tickets here and keep sending them in just in case riding to school in a fire truck is TOO COOL that you want to increase your chances.
This is a highlight from A Little Beacon Blog’s School Opportunities Guide. There are more special events listed there, plus ways you can effortlessly donate to one of the schools in our district, through glass bottle collection, box tops, and other easy ways.
