My Students

My students have a love for animals and they want to see what creatures live beyond our small community!

We are a K-8 school on the outskirts of Greenville, NC.

We are a high poverty school and many of our students have never been outside the county. Our Kindergarten students are the sweetest and smartest you will meet! Not only have they learned a lot in academics, but they have also learned so much about friendship and respect for others. They have a love for animals and would like to see what animals live beyond our small city.

My Project

We are excited to take a "FREE" trip to the North Carolina Zoo! The Zoo is free of charge; however, there is only one problem. We have to pay for the transportation to get there! Students will be able to see animals from not only other areas of the United States, but also animals from all over the world. For many of our students, this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Students will be able to view animals from all over the world.

Being exposed to things like this will help students gain an appreciation for all creatures. This helps to establish respect for all creatures no matter great or small.
