My Students

Selfless, thoughtful, talented, and dedicated are only a few words to describe our tribe of students.

We are a small Title I magnet school in the heart of High Point, North Carolina.

Our 5th-grade tribe has forty-three members and two dedicated teachers striving to encourage and inspire these students to their highest potential.

We began this year with a mission to make 2018-2019 THE year, for each and every student. In doing this we are creating a tribe atmosphere, with a special flair. Teaching our students not only math and reading skills, but also how to be kind and thoughtful people, while having a ton of fun along the way.

One of our biggest wishes as tribe leaders this year is to take our students on the field trip of a lifetime to visit the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. While a field trip of this magnitude will be an experience they will not soon forget, it will also be a cost that many can't afford. That being said, we would like to make the trip FREE for every student! Please help make our dream a reality for our tribe.

My Project

If our project is fully funded, we will take our students on the field trip of a lifetime. Our students have been reading the novel Serafina and the Black Cloak, the setting of the novel is the Biltmore Estate and the forest surrounding it. As a reward for their hard work and focus, we want to reward them with a fantastic field trip to see this magnificent mansion.

Our plan is to pull out of school early in the morning, to make the two and a half hour drive through beautiful western North Carolina to the palatial Biltmore Estate.

Once we have arrived, the students will be lead on a tour through the mansion. After the tour they will enjoy a lovely lunch on the property. Shortly after we will head home to the Triad, while watching the June sun set over the Appalachian Mountains.

*This project will have to be submitted a number of times, in order to be fully funded.
