Power of Money Field Trip!

LA High RisesUnion Rescue Mission

DRCS 6th Grade Class Power of Money Field Trip to

Los Angeles & Union Rescue Mission

Tuesday, January 15, 2013 – 9am to 8:30pm

Cost $8 – Covers Lunch & Dinner


Hello Parents & Students,

Our next class field trip is just six days away.  I am extremely sorry for the late notice, but I know this trip will open your student’s eyes about how they see money, possessions, and life.

In the last month we have been learning about the power of money.  We looked at how money can control us if we let greed take over and steered the students, to instead, see other ideas where money is used in powerful, life-changing ways.  This field trip is to give our students a distinctly different experience to see even more so the pleasure in using money to change lives.

First, we will travel to downtown Los Angeles where we can vividly see multiple ideas behind money and its purposes.  During that time we will have lunch in a unique way where students will be split up in groups and will be given a certain amount of money to buy lunch.

We will end our day touring the Union Rescue Mission in Skid Row to see how money can be used powerfully to change lives.  We will also get the opportunity to help out with homeless kids during an open gym time and have dinner with them and their families there at the Union Rescue Mission.          

We are in need of at least four drivers for this field trip. The cost for parents and students is $8 and includes lunch and dinner.  Please wear your DRCS shirts on that day. 

The attached form needs to be returned no later than Friday, January 11th


Again, I apologize for the late notice.

Mr. Thompson
