The time is upon us to begin preparation the the annual Paul Phillips 8th grade campout May 17th - May 19th. Permission forms have been sent home with students, and your child will need the form completed and returned in order to attend. We would also encourage a donation for camping meals, camping fees, and replacement costs for campout equipment. A suggested amount would be $20 and would be greatly appreciated.
