Our school sponsors a reading club, called the Will C. Wood Book Club, that encourages combining reading and fun for our students. For each book that our club reads, we promote a local field trip or activity designed to enrich knowledge from each book. Imagine experiencing life in Medieval Japan by participating in an authentic Tea Ceremony, followed by the "dinner and a show" of lunch at Benihana's restaurant. We are a Title I school, with a 100% free lunch program. Despite the financial challenge we are committed to providing thought provoking and entertaining field trips and activities to promote learning for our students. For this field trip, our Book Club members are reading two novels set in Medieval Japan: The Sign of the Chrysanthemum by Katherine Patterson and A Samurai's Tale by Erik Christian Haggard For our field trip, our club members will participate in two activities: We will visit the Japanese Tea Garden at California State University-Sacramento and while there, participate in an authentic Japanese Tea Ceremony. We will close our field trip with lunch at Benihana's Japanese Restaurant. Since we are a 7/8 Middle School, we design our field trips to take place every other year, so that incoming 7th graders can belong to Book Club for two years without repeating any novels/field trips/activities. We are asking for support to pay for transportation, replacement books, and partial support for the lunch at Benihana's. Although students contribute to the cost of their lunch, their contribution does not cover the full cost of each meal, plus tax and a 20% trip for such a large group.
