To the Editor:
This is a plea for assistance. I teach English at Madras High and have made arrangements to take 50 of our junior and senior students to Portland to see the Nutcracker ballet on December 12.
Unfortunately the school district is short of funds and is unable to assist in the bus transportation. It will cost us $480 for the trip.
Students are paying more for their tickets to help offset this cost and the Buff Boosters have generously offered their assistance, but we are still short.
Anyone who would like to help our students attend this function may contribute to our bus fund by calling the high school and asking for Mrs. Susan Gardner, our bookkeeper. Any amount would be gratefully appreciated.
On behalf of our students, I thank you for your consideration.
Madras High School
