Teachers seeking community support for fundraiser, educational trip

Participants of trip will tour Havana, Cuba

Two Amador Valley High groups are looking for the community's support for academic and athletic projects.

Karen Lord-Eyewe, an Amador Valley Spanish teacher, is signing up students and adults for a trip to Cuba next summer, and the Amador Valley High cheer team is looking for donations to support this year's squad.

Lord-Eyewe will take a group to Cuba in June of 2016 through EF Tours, an internationally known educational tour company, now that the border has been opened to American tourists. The nine-day, $3,720 tour will start in Miami, Fla., in Little Havana, and participants will fly to Havana, Cuba, to visit a community daycare center, meet local artists and hike trails.

The Amador Valley cheer team is looking to raise $10,000 to buy safety equipment, team gear, uniforms and to pay for travel expenses and competition fees. As of Monday, the squad had raised more than $5,609, and it will run until Oct. 11.
