Mrs. Hart from Fort Smith AR is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Theater Field Trip

My students need the opportunity to experience the theater. Most of the students in our classes will never have the opportunity to attend the theater.

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.

They like to move, use hands-on learning, and experience real-world situations to enhance learning. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a real world, hands-on way, I am hoping to inspire even our struggling learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

This field trip will affect the lives of 84 4th grade students. A local company is presenting Beauty and The Beast and giving the schools a discounted price to attend. This play will teach the students not to judge others by the way they look, but by the person, they are on the inside.

This will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for most of our students to attend a theater production.

The opportunity to experience the theater will give our students a glimpse of the world outside our local community. It will also provide them with some culture that most of them cannot get on their own.
