Field Trip Rescue

$550 of $550 goal

Raised by 9 people in 16 months
I am a teacher at Coliseum College Prep Academy high school in East Oakland, in a low-income/high poverty school district. Although my students face many challenges, in school and out of the classroom, they rise to be exceptional. I am proud to say that our school has a 91% graduation rate, the highest ever reported in the Oakland Unified School District. We are a strong community made up of parents, students, and teachers which allows us to see students grow from 6th graders to Seniors applying for college. My students are resilient, kind, and adventurous.

In addition to academics, one of the school’s priorities is to provide new experiences in different environments for students. Which is why CCPA created Post Session, fun courses during the last 2 weeks of school to explore topics outside of their regular course work. Post Session field trips often provide the only opportunity for my students to explore outside of their neighborhood. Unfortunately, our district froze all funding we had set aside, but teachers are determined to save Post Session. We need your help!

For some of our students, field trips during Post Session are often the only opportunity they have to leave their neighborhood and experience neighboring cities. We have planned a set of field trips in which students learn about photography while exploring the Bay Area. We plan to take students hiking in San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley to introduce local nature. In addition, we will visit different neighborhoods like, Chinatown, Japantown, and the Mission District. This money would go towards funding public transit, materials, cultural experiences, and community-building activities.

 My students and I would be so grateful for any donation you can make or sharing this link. Thank you for your support and rescuing our field trips!
