Last updated 12/25/2008 at Noon

Potter Jr. High students, including John DiMercurio (left) and Joanna Gonda, are selling candy in front of Albertsons to earn money to pay for their eighth grade East Coast trip.

FALLBROOK — Potter Junior High students are now working to raise funds for the annual eighth grade class trip.

“Everyone talks about the destinations – Washington, DC, and New York – but a large part of the learning takes place during the process of earning the money to go on the trip. That process is very important,” said Potter parent Peggy DiMercurio while working with her son John.

“No one really wants to give up free time to work. Plus, selling candy at Albertsons is kind of embarrassing,” said Potter student Joanna Gonda.

Embarrassing or not, look for Potter students...
