Mr. Latimer from Reseda CA is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Heal The Bay Collaboration

My students need a box of large trash bags, plastic gloves, and two cases of water for their Heal The Bay beach clean-up. They also need bus transportation.

My Students

We all love clean beaches and it is encouraging that students at C. High School love making the beach free of litter. Last year, our students filled over 20 bags of trash and participated in a hands-on activity that teaches them to appreciate the environment! We want to do it again this year!

Even though our school is just over the hills from the beach, many of our students have never even spent time there.

By participating in this beach clean-up, we connect classroom lessons and environmental awareness to a productive and life changing activity.

My Project

Because of budget cuts, the cost of transportation (out major expense) is not covered by the school district. The only additional costs are the materials to conduct the clean-up. We also have a group of dedicated volunteers and retired teachers that help us keep staffing costs at zero.

Many of our students are low income and will greatly benefit by this field trip so they can actually apply what they learn in the classroom to real life actions to make a difference in the world.

Not only will they be learning about environmental issues in their Environmental Studies class, they will be reading and writing about the topic in English class, filming the clean-up for their Video class, and working to make the world a better place.
