A Trip of a Lifetime - Washington D.C. (June 2018)

The Description

I currently teach 8th grade U.S. History at Landrum Middle School where more than 90% of our students are economically disadvantaged and at-risk of not graduating. Our eighth grade students have worked incredibly hard this school year and I couldn’t be more proud of all the success they will have beyond middle school.

In June, I will be taking a group of 11 eighth graders to Washington D.C. to see their history lessons come alive. The students that have been selected for this trip are students with good behavior, are in good academic standing, and are eager to learn and experience the history of our great nation.

Working at Landrum for three years now, I can attest to the unfortunate reality that for many of our kids this will be the first time they travel outside a 5 mile radius of their home. Opportunities like this one are hard to come by, especially for students like ours. With your financial support we can help expand their knowledge on the history of this great country while giving them a once-in-a lifetime experience that can change their lives.

Check out our Tour Website (www.eftours.com/1971234DSM) which details all the information about the trip. You can find out fun activities and cultural events we will be experiencing on tour. You can also review all that’s included in the program and watch videos of the sites the students will be visiting.

Our students have shown great determination in our fundraisers as they have held various events throughout the school year; such as a tamale sale, selling concessions at sporting events, and even weekly morning donut sales to help pay for their cost.

The cost for each of student to attend is $1,733. Our ultimate goal is to raise enough money to pay for all 11 students trips. Any donation given will be tax deductible.

Benjamin Franklin once said, “An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest”. This opportunity to invest in our student’s future will leave a lasting impact on them for the rest of their lives.

On behalf of our Landrum Community, we thank you for your generous donation, and/or contacts who could help our efforts.

Feel free to contact me with any questions and/or information you may have to help meet our goal! You may also comment in the section below.

First of all I just want to say THANK YOU!
