Eighth-graders at Pioneer Middle School are raising funds for their Washington, D.C., trip by selling Big Cheese Pizza certificates for a large gourmet pizza for $10. It's an $8 savings, the Dec. 10 online Walla Walla Public Schools Week in Review noted. The certificates are good until October 2011 and would make great stocking stuffers, organizers said.
