HTDHS Trip Class
In addition to the many short field trips offered at HTDHS, we also plan an extensive trip each year. Activities on these trips combine community service and educational experiences. Students who wish to participate work together throughout the year to raise the money needed for travel, accommodations, and supplies. The planning, organizing, and fundraising for this school trip are all carried out by students under the supervision of a staff member.
This year’s goal is to raise $3,000 for 1–2 week service project trip to Puerto Rico. The fundraising plan for this trip includes a Change Drive (people donate their loose change), a Bottle Drive (people donate refundable bottles and cans), and various Holiday Events (see below). Additionally, direct donations to the trip fund can be made through the PayPal by clicking here.
