Help me give my students bus transportation to watch a performance of the Nutcracker Ballet.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our school has made tremendous gains over the past twelve years, moving from one of the lowest-performing schools in the area to achieving the honor of being named a California Distinguished School!
We are an example of a community of students, teachers, parents, and staff all working together for academic achievement.
Our hope is that many of our students will be the first generation in their families to go to college!
The majority of my students are English language learners (ELLs) whose families are newcomers to America. They are highly motivated to learn and prosper.
I am requesting a bus to take 50 students to a performance of the Nutcracker Ballet. Our school has a minimal school budget so we do not have funds to pay for the school bus. Will you help us to get to the ballet? The San Gabriel Mission Theater is a wonderful place that is not too far from our school.
My students will be able to experience a ballet performance for the first time in their lives.
They will be able to experience an amazing performance that incorporates all of the performing arts. This opportunity is rare and I'm certain my students will appreciate the performing arts in a much deeper level.
When I share with my students that they will be able to watch the Nutcracker Ballet because of the generous donations of many people who wish to have a part in their education, that will be a valuable lesson. Just as you share by donating to our classroom and to my students, it is hoped that they, too, will learn to be people who share with others.
