You've Got To Be Kidding! NYC Kids Not True New Yorkers!

The cost for 30 students and 6 chaperones to attend the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island field trip is $264, including <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

Greetings to anyone who has the courage to read this! I just happen to work at one of the best schools in NYC! Would you believe it if I told you I have students that have never been to the Statue of Liberty? I am from Kansas and have been living and teaching in Harlem for seven years now! (And even "I" have been to see the "lady"!) Every year my students and I discuss immigration practices and the significance of cultural tradition. It always amazes me to hear how many students have NOT traveled outside of their borough! There are so many wonderful historical landmarks right here in "their backyards". Many of my sixth-graders are first or second generation citizens of this country. They come from Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Mexico and Russia. They have never visited Ellis Island or the Statue of Liberty! I would like to plan a project in which the students create a living story board in regards to their ancestral linkage to this country. Please help us! Approximately 30 students will participate along with 6 attendants. It's important that students have a memorable educational experience which will forever stay with them in their hearts and minds! Thank You!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
