Ms. Locke from Charlotte NC is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need a trip to an outdoor camp to enhance an appreciation for the outdoors and life skills.
My students are faced with many challenges inside and outside the classroom due to their socioeconomic status. Our school is a Title I school where over 90% of our students receive free or reduced meals. The majority of my students are also faced with the challenge of learning English as their second language. Despite the many challenges that my students face, they are capable of so much and I know they can be successful.
My goal is to create an environment for my students that is inviting, engaging, and meaningful.
My classroom is a safe place where learning is fun but adds meaning to their lives. Thanks to your donations I will continue to be able to do whatever I can to help my students succeed and move on to be successful members of society!
The project funds will go to YMCA Camp Thunderbird and CMS transportation to pay for our students to go to this day camp experience. The funds will pay for the transportation to and from the camp and outdoor activities which include exploring the forest and river, aquatic ecology, wildlife exploration, along with team building games and a campfire. The cost also covers all meals while our students are at camp. Students have spent the past few months studying a variety of science concepts such as ecosystems and weather. This trip will allow them to make real-life connections to some of these concepts.
The students will have the opportunity to learn science, life, and social skills while experiencing a valuable camp experience that they might not otherwise be able to have!
Camp Thunderbird is an amazing experience that we want all of our students to be able to experience regardless of their financial situation. We cannot wait to be outside the walls of the classroom applying what we have learned this year in science and ending fifth grade with a trip they will not forget!
