On Saturday, May 11, the sophomore class (Class of 2015) will be holding a car wash at the Mattapoisett Fire Station. The car wash is a fundraiser for the class. It will take place from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
According to Mrs. Morrell and Mr. Rogers, the advisors to the Class of 2015, each sophomore student will receive two tickets in their homerooms that they are encouraged to sell. Each ticket is $5. Students are also encouraged to sell more tickets if possible. Car owners attending the car wash are required to have a ticket, and tickets will be available on the day of the car wash. All are encouraged to attend.
The goal of the car wash is to raise money specifically for the Class of 2015’s Junior Semi-Formal and Senior Prom. Class advisors Morrell and Rogers have announced intentions for all future fundraisers for the class treasury to go toward the two events in the upcoming years. The advisors hope to give the class lower ticket fees for the two events than in years past. The lowering of ticket costs has becomes the class’s collective goal.
There will be two prizes awarded after the car wash. The first prize goes to the homeroom that collectively sells the most tickets. The prize will be a free breakfast for that homeroom. Another prize will go out to the individual that sells the most tickets. The individual prize has yet to be announced.
