Ms. Russo from Metairie LA is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help me give my students a chance to attend the Louisiana Renaissance Festival. The students will be paying for the transportation cost and ticket cost needs to be funded.

My Students

Most of my students are considered Special Ed or English Language learners. A lot of times, school is the only place they feel welcomed and comfortable. A classroom should be where the students feel safe.

They strive to go beyond receiving just a high school diploma to become successful.

My students deserve the best education that I can offer which includes creating a positive classroom environment and learning experiences outside the classroom. These children deserve nothing less than a quality education. A positive classroom environment and a class trip will go a long way.

My Project

This field trip to the Louisiana Renaissance Festival will allow my students to have hands-on, engaged learning that is rarely experienced for students at the secondary level. This field trip provides a unique combination of education and entertainment we call “edutainment.” The village of Albright is brought to life through the dedication of our villagers, craftsmen, and performers.

There are demonstrations depicting life in the sixteenth century such as candle making, spinning, weaving, and glass blowing, just to name a few.

There is also a jousting arena that seats nearly four thousand spectators to ensure everyone that joins us gets a great view of the only full contact joust in Louisiana or Mississippi.
