My school is in a high poverty and crime ridden area of Chicago. Some of our students have already lost a parent or someone in their lives to violence. With that said, my students are amazing. They are inquisitive and eager learners!
Our school budget was cut once again.
The schools just don't have the funds to help teachers as they once did. Teachers like me spend money on our students very often. Now, I am hoping to be able to provide some essential items with your help!
Our students learn about multiple winter holidays. The Museum of Science and Industry has one of the best displays for learning about these holidays. It is so important that young children learn about other cultures so they can grow to respect differences. In today's world, this needs to be a priority and what an exciting way to learn.
We were able to secure all but one bus.
With your help, our entire primary program will be able to visit the museum and learn about different cultures. Upon return to school, we will all be able to do a discussion with our students about their thoughts about the differences they learned about.
