Mr. Gray from Nashua NH is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Once In A Lifetime Chance:NH Students Study In Hawaii

Help me give my students assistance with funding this truly unique hands-on learning experience.

  • $1,469 goal

This project expired on January 14, 2019.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our urban school district in New Hampshire provides educational services for students across the socioeconomic spectrum. Approximately 44% of our students currently receive funding for free and reduced meals.

Many of the participating students lack the economic support that would help offset the costs associated with such a rich learning experience.

But, they understand that the trip that we have planned for them simply cannot be replicated within a traditional classroom setting, and they have taken on the challenge of paying for the trip themselves.

Our students have worked extremely hard to earn the money necessary to participate in this trip, and we would like to assist them in further defraying the costs. Help us to make this once in a lifetime learning experience as positive and powerful as we know that it can be.

My Project

Our students will be fully immersed in the culture of Hawaii for eleven days. They will take part in the festivities of a Hawaiian luau rather than simply see a video of such an experience. Our students will walk the trail to the summit at the Diamond Head Crater, rather than simply read an article about the location. They will have the chance to observe sea turtles, whales, and dolphins in their natural habitat.

Finally, our students will honor the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for our nation when they view the remains of the USS Arizona from the floating dock at Pearl Harbor.
