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

The Description

I currently teach 8th grade U.S. History at Landrum Middle School which is a title one school in Spring Branch ISD. More than 80% of our students are economically disadvantaged and have not had the opportunity to travel outside the vicinity of their neighborhood.

We are hoping to take at least 10 students on this trip of a lifetime to Washington D.C. in the summer of 2018, where their history lessons will 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.

The price for each student to attend is $1,733. This price includes airfare, hotel, all food, all tours/activities, tickets to museums, a full tour guide, overnight security, ground transportation, and so much more. 

The money raised will be equally divided among the students and deducted from their total cost. If we raise our goal of $5,000, it will allow us to contribute $500 per student. We know that $500 will not cover the entire amount of the trip, but anything we can raise will help.

Check out our Tour Website which details all the information about the trip.  (www.eftours.com/1971234DS)  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.

This is a life changing opportunity for many of my students. It will give them the ability to learn out of the classroom and into the world which opens their eyes, preparing them for lifelong success.

Any amount you are willing to pledge will be more than appreciated. Any money donated will be tax deductible.

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

Back Up Plan

If I do not meet my goal I will use all the funds that are pledged to share equally towards the total cost of each student's trip.
