Principals get field trip money
Soroptimist International of Tahoe Sierra recently presented a $250 check to each of the Lake Tahoe Unified School District elementary school principals. The donations will be used to fund bus rides for students to field trips.
The principals and their schools are Karen Tinlin, Bijou Community School; Mark Romagnolo, Tahoe Valley Elementary School; and Jim Watson, Sierra House Elementary School.
The school bus transportation was either paid by the parents or funded through state programs, but no money is available for “extras” for field trips. Field trips are an important part of hands-on learning, and staying behind at school is not so great for those who can’t afford to pay the extra fee.
This small subsidy is a big plus for the students.
