About this Campaign
Belmont Elementary first through fourth grade students would like to attend Dinosaurs Zoo Live at the Lied Center on January 9. Dinosaurs Live features life-size dinosaur puppets that will make the students' imaginations soar!
Your gifts will pay for tickets and the bus expenses incurred in taking approximately 530 students and staff to the performance. Belmont is in a high poverty area with about 80 percent of our students receiving free or reduced lunches.
Our school parent group is a very small group of about seven adults with limited funds. The group does not have the resources to fund this journey. Belmont student families typically are not able to experience theater arts events. This experience will be an opportunity for teachers to demonstrate and teach their students proper etiquette and behavior in a theater setting. The program also ties in with the following curriculum areas: Social Studies/History, Science, Theatre (Puppetry), Visual Arts. Requesting $2500.00 plus cost reimbursement.

On behalf of Belmont Elementary, I would like to thank all of our generous donors. Our students were able to experience a wonderful performance at the Lied Center. Opportunities like this enrich the lives of our students--for many of them this is the only time they will experience such a performance!
