Last year, when we heard about the school district budget cuts removing field trip opportunities, we sponsored the entire first grade class of Millsap Elementary to go to the Houston Museum of Natural Science for a day. It was such a huge success that we decided to do it again this year – but multiplied!! We connected with FIVE elementary schools in our district who jumped at the opportunity! We sponsored each of their first grade classes to go to the science museum all within two days.
The students have been learning about butterflies, so we also sponsored their admission into the butterfly exhibit. This was by far the hit of the day! As you can see in the photos, it was quite a magical experience for the kids to see the butterflies up close and personal.
We could not have pulled this off without the administration, first grade teachers and chaperones from Adam, Millsap, Hamilton, Moore and Black! More huge thank you’s go to Becky Diaz, field trip coordinator with the science museum, Dayna Myers with Select Screen Printing for printing the t-shirts and Randy Olive of Randy Olive Photography for the fun t-shirt design!
Enjoy these images from Day 1 – but stay tuned for many more photos on later blog entries!
