JaShonna's DC/NYC trip 3/27/13-4/3/13

Hi, my name is Jashonna Davis and I am 11 years old. I am in the 6th grade and attend Westborough Middle School in South San Francisco, Ca. I have an opportunity to experience two fantastic cities that are steeped with culture and history. I will see lessons learned in my classroom come alive! I will experience our nation's government in action! I will walk the footsteps of our nation's greatest leaders!

 

"To know where you're going, you need to understand where you've been."

 

With the generous help of my family, friends, and extended social network family willing to believe and invest in my efforts to help raise the required $1,500 to take advantage of this amazing opportunity, I will not just visit Washington D.C., and New York City, I will experience them! I will experience them and be able to blend education, adventure and fun into one extraordinary journey that will be rememebered forever!

 

Sincerely,

Ja'Shonnna Jarae Davis

 

Message from my mommy:

One of my core beliefs and principles centers around the notion that a quality education is a key and critical cornerstone to success. With this said, I am proud of the South San Francisco public education thus far. Over the next few years this is a part of history she will learn in class. I am thankful for the learning exposure she is allowed to take advantage of. I believe that this will be a transformative experience that will allow her to demonstrate personal responsibilty and growth, and create memories that will last a lifetime. This is why I am so excited to share with you and engage your support in this educational opportunity.

"Education is not the piling on of learning, information, data, facts, skills, or abilities--that's training or instruction--but is rather a making visible what is hidden as a seed...
To be educated, a person doesn't have to know much or be informed, but he or she does have to have been exposed vulnerably to the transformative events of an engaged human life... One of the greatest problems of our time is that many are schooled but few are educated." -Thomas Moore
