Each year in May or June the 5th graders participate in a special 5th grade trip. In an effort to ease the fundraising load for the 4/5 teacher, each of the classroom teachers organize and run one Pancake Breakfast per year. The 4/5 does one in the fall,
the K/R grade class holds theirs soon after December Break,the 2/3 class does one in early March and the 1/2 class holds theirs in late May. Money that is raised at each breakfast is split up between the participating grades and is banked for their fifth grade trip in the future.
We ask for participation in some way from each family in the group that is sponsoring the breakfasts. We try very hard not to overwhelm families with fundraising activities throughout the year. These breakfasts and our PTO Auction in April are typically the only fundraisers we hold.
Our Pancake Breakfasts at the Nelson Elementary School run from 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. The charge is $5.00 per plate.
