The fifth-grade classes at Lake Tahoe Environmental Science Magnet School invite the community to a Valentine Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Feb. 13 at the school cafeteria.

Tickets are $7 for adults, $4 for children and $20 for a family of four. Tickets are available at the school office and at the door.

The event will feature a silent auction with some great prizes, a raffle, face painting and a “sweetheart photo booth.” Local businesses have donated products and prizes to support the students. The night promises to be a fun event while raising money for a great cause.

Proceeds from the spaghetti dinner will help the students with the fundraising efforts needed for their annual end-of-year field trip to the Marine Science Institute and Hall of Science in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This trip has a dual purpose in that the students get to participate in hands-on experiments of subject which they have been studying all year long. It also helps the students facilitate strong bonds and friendships that will help them as they move along to middle school.
