R.A.F.T. is a year-round club for teens in Grades 6 - 8. The club's purpose is to offer members safe, quality trips and special events they have expressed an interest in, at little to no cost. This past year over 1,000 teens joined and participated in the planned events. There is a $10 yearly membership fee that entitles the student to admission for each event. Registration begins in each elementary school cafeteria during the month of September and October. Students receive a RAFT Membership card which must be presented to participate in every activity. Students also receive monthly newsletters with information about upcoming trips and special events. All students who were RAFT members in the 2013-2014 school year should keep their card. Previous events included ice skating trips, ski trips, amusement and water park trips, roller-skating trips, and attending a Boston Red Sox game. Members of this club have an important role in deciding what trips we go on through their recommendations!
