Hooray! This project is fully funded
We are an AMAZING school full of wonderful students.
We are a PK-5 school with 450 enrolled students.
56% of our enrolled students are Hispanic and 41% are of African-American descent. 22% of our students have Individualized Education Plans. 15% of our student body is classified as English Language Learners. 22% of students reside in temporary housing.
An area of challenge as a school is our student attendance but once the students get to the building, the magic happens! We are on an upward trajectory of growth as noted in our doubling of proficiency in our state math scores and steady increase in proficiency in our ELA scores as well.
This trip is a opportunity of a lifetime! Many of our students have been to the Museum of Natural History during the day as a regular field trip, but this is an amazing opportunity to celebrate their elementary school career--and learn! Ordinarily this trip would cost a family of four $600. This is an expense some of our families are not able to afford. By incorporating it into our school year, students are able to experience a learning opportunity they might not come across again.
During this trip, students will be led on a fossil finding scavenger hunt, watch an education film at the famous LeFrak Theater and have access to special exhibitions--all while making lifelong memories with their friends and teachers from elementary school.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
