My students need the opportunity to visit the capital of Missouri, which the majority of them will never be able to experience.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our students come from a low socioeconomic background. Despite the hardships they face outside the classroom, they come to school ready to learn everyday. Our students feel like school is their safe place, where they feel comfortable to share what they need with their teachers and friends. Ultimately, the students are looking for someone to love and encourage them in their learning.
The majority of our students never get to experience things outside of our classrooms.
We teach the 7 habits of happy kids in our building. This has helped our students gain self confidence and how to interact with their peers and teachers. They are ready to take on the world and deserve a chance to do so.
My students come from a low socioeconomic background. Most of them struggle to make it to school but are determined to show up and be present despite the odds. We have been studying the history of Missouri and have an opportunity to visit Jefferson City, the capital of Missouri. While there we will see the Capital building, the Governor's Mansion, Supreme Court building, Jefferson Landing, and the Highway Patrol Museum. Our students hear about this trip from the students that have come before them. They look forward to this trip so they can have a mental picture of what we have been studying for the past 3 months. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for them because the majority of our students will never be able to go if it was not funded through the school.
