My Students

My students are strong, hard-working, and inspiring children. They attend a Title I school which means many of them come from low income families. They all love to sing, dance, and are eager to learn.

My students are my heroes.

Somehow regardless of the challenges they are facing at home, they come to school with a smile on their faces. Many of my students have been through more in their short life span than I have been through in my life so far.

My Project

On this field trip, 110 first grade students will be able to participate in many different activities including hay rides, a fossil hunt, animal encounters, an aviary adventure, horse walker swing, reptile encounter, and much more! They will be researching and writing about the animals they will see and other parts of the farm. They will complete their writing after the trip to expand on what they learned.

We want to give our amazing first graders memories they will never forget!

Many of our Title I students have never had an experience like this and we are eager to extend their learning outside of the classroom. We greatly appreciate any help we can get.
