• Dear Parents of Students at Upper Adams Middle School,


         As in previous years, our Upper Adams Middle School PTO is providing the financial support for our seventh and eighth grade field trips this school year.  Our seventh grade students will visit Washington, DC in May, and our eighth grade students will go to the Poe Evermore Estate in Lancaster, PA in November.  Both of these field trips are important as they supplement respective grade level curriculums.

         This year we expect the total cost of field trips to be more than $3500.00, which exceeds previous years.  In order for the PTO to cover the increased cost, which includes the cost of admission for our students into Poe Evermore, we are asking for your help!  The PTO is asking parents to consider making a donation as a fundraiser to support these trips.  Please understand that a donation is not a requirement for any student to attend a field trip.  All students will attend.  If you would like to make a donation to the PTO, you may send it to the middle school or simply have your child give it to his/her homeroom teacher.  All checks should be made payable to “Upper Adams Middle School PTO.”  If you have any questions regarding these field trips or making a donation, please feel free to contact Dave Zinn or Melinda Culp.  The PTO appreciates any support which you can provide!

         Also, we would like to invite all parents/guardians to our monthly PTO meetings on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:00 pm in the high school library.  We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting on Tuesday, November 1st.
