Our third graders are full of energy, excitement, and wonder. They come to school every day wondering what we will learn, wondering what the day will bring, and wondering what new skills they will acquire. While that wonder ignites a passion for learning in them, the means to take that wonder beyond the classroom are not available to many of our students.
We work in a Title I school with 100% of our students receiving free breakfast and lunch.
Many of our students also take home backpack meals on the weekends. With this financial hardship prevalent in so many of their lives, our students' opportunities to satisfy their curiosity are often limited.
We want to take our students to the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Montana. Thanks to generous donations, the MOR offers free admission to students and partial travel reimbursement. Even with this help, the cost of the charter buses to travel to and from Bozeman is quite expensive. This adventure will give students an opportunity to learn, grow, and develop their critical thinking skills.
The students will get to experience the largest collection of North American dinosaur fossils in the country, learn about Montana's rich history, and experience an engaging show in the Taylor Planetarium.
These exhibits will give students an opportunity for hands-on learning and to expand their curiosity beyond the classroom walls.
