Mr. Minkler from N Las Vegas NV is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Discovering the Wonders of Nevada

My students need a chartered bus and driver for an overnight field trip to Great Basin National Park.

My Students

Every year we take 150 fourth graders on an overnight field trip to Great Basin National Park.

Our school is a Title One, 100 percent free or reduced lunch school.

Our parents are hard working and very supportive, but can't always provide the enrichment activities their children need. The fourth grade students look forward to the "Ely Trip" every year.

My Project

Chartering a bus is more economical than using district buses. We are on the bus all day as we visit the different stops on our tour. We visit many historical site around Ely, Nevada as well as unique geological formations. I think the bus drivers enjoy the trip as much as our students.

For many of our students this is the only chance they will have to spend time in a rural setting, much less a National Park.

Because of the challenges faced by our state, we want our students to grow up to be responsible citizens. This trip exposes them to other aspects of Nevada that they may not see on their own.
