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

We're Going On a Magical Trip

My Students

My students attend a Title 1 school with close to 1,000 students. 100% of students receive free lunch. My students are always energetic, motivated and ready to learn.

Our classroom is very diverse.

We have several exceptional children and newcomers to the country.

Our school provides food pantries along with parent curriculum nights to assist parents with teaching students new concepts.

My students have a lot of potential. I see them being very successful as the year progresses. My students are creative and fun. They love one another on good and bad days. They forgive each other on a daily basis and are always willing to help others. We accept one another as we are.

My Project

I'm a teacher at a title 1 school in Charlotte N.C. Our students have little to no exposure to the arts. This trip will benefit the students by increasing their interest in reading fictional and fantasy stories. On this field trip students will not only watch but also participate in creating magic.

Students haven't been able to experience a field trip this year.

This trip will take them to the heart of their city, which some of them have never seen. This trip will help students believe not only in magic but also in themselves. Most of our students have never attended the theater or a live play outside of the school. This trip will expose them to the arts and create an interest in the arts for them.

This will also increase their interest in magic and how it closely relates to science. This field trip will not only expose but also imprint that magic can happen anywhere. Be a part of the magic by donating to our students field trip experience.
