We are a group of 6th grade teachers who want to give our students the opportunity to take their learning out of the classroom and into nature.


Studies show that students learn and retain information when they take an active role in the learning process. The Outdoor Education team takes the learning-by-doing philosophy one step further - learning by doing in the natural environment. The Outdoor Education program allows students to see, hear, feel, smell, and even taste the world around them. Students develop a greater appreciation for the environment through this firsthand experiance. 

We are raising money to provide partial scholarships to those students who are not able to afford the total fee for Outdoor Education.

The money will be used to provide scholarships and gear necessary for all of our students to participate in this experience. The cost is $120 per student, which for many of our families is not an option. 

We need these funds to be in place in April for the  2016-2017 school year.

This money will not go to one specific student, but rather to a group fund to benifit all students. 

This money would mean that no student would miss out on this amazing teambuilding and learning experience with their classmates because their family does not have the funds.  

We will be unimaginably grateful for every contribution. As educators it is difficult to create learning opportunities that have a lasting impact. We are fortunate that we can offer Outdoor Education as one of those opportunities.  Each contribution made is an investment in our community and our kids!
