Mrs. Coleman from Hartford CT is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Students of Month Celebratory Trip

My students need an opportunity to explore and experience life and options outside the city of Hartford.

My Students

The 10th-grade Students of the Month are those who exemplify the Tripple-A model: excellence in Academics, Attitude, and Attendance. These students represent their school, parents, and the community responsibly in a challenging environment. This "History outside the Classroom" trip is a demonstration that their hard work is recognized.

Our 10th-grade motto is 20/20 Vision, Seeing the Future Clearly.

Our goal is to foster and empower our students with the drive to persevere towards a brighter future beyond the city of Hartford. This trip is a catalyst toward that goal.

My Project

Our sophomore students of the month will have an opportunity to explore US History beyond the city of Hartford at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. The textbooks will come alive as they visit several historical sites and museums in the heart of downtown Philadelphia.

Students will learn first hand that they can continually overcome challenges.

This historical trip will provide evidence of brave men and women who stood against all odd for liberty and freedom. This trip offers an opportunity for our students to reflect, affirm, dream, and learn. It's an opportunity to encourage emotional growth, challenge mindsets, and change perspectives.

This memorable experience provides an opportunity for our students to share experiences with their classmates, families, and community.
