Mrs. Masterson from Greensboro NC is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

Our 2 Pre-K classes have been fortunate to receive grants to various educational, hands-on facilities around our community. These grants cover the cost of admission only, which leaves the teachers with the responsibility to cover cost of transportation and bus driver fees. The average cost of one trip is about $90.00. We currently have 4 exciting trips scheduled this year to the Children's Museum, Science Center, ArtQuest, and the Central Library (Raise-A-Reader End Year Celebration).

Since we are a Title 1 public school program, which services low-income families throughtout the city, we are not allowed to ask our families to pay any funds for trips or school supplies.

We are requesting donations to cover our field trip transportation costs.

Our students are in a Title I school and most of them walk to school from the local community.

Our school is 100% free and reduced-price lunch. For many of our students, school is a place to get away, learn and have positive interactions with other classmates and staff. Our students are 4 and 5 years old and full of wonder and excitement for school. They would greatly benefit from the out of the classroom experiences.

Thank you.

My Project

These trips will expose them to various educational, hand-on experiences in and outside our community. By attending the Greensboro Science Center, the students will have hands on experiences with the Animal Outreach, robotics, simple science, art, music and stories that revolve around participants. ArtQuest will have hands on activities the will ignite there creativity.

By attending Greensboro Children's Museum the students will explore garden for harvest time!

In this hands-on preschool program, we will explore The Edible Schoolyard together, playing and learning all along the way. This garden series will focus on a different theme each week.

When Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math combine, it expands the lens we use to view our world. Stretch your imagination and put your mind to work with a morning packed with hands-on activities and experiments. By attending Central Public Library for the annual Raise-A-Reader Program (which we participate in) End of Year Celebration. This celebration will have various activities, such as Folk Tales, Storytelling etc.
