About this Campaign
This Fund a Need is for the McPhee Elementary annual fifth grade zoo trip. It has been a tradition at McPhee Elementary that fifth0grade students go on an end-of-the-year zoo trip as a "going away to middle school" reward.
We are a Title I school, with a majority of our students receiving free and reduced lunches. The poverty level, along with our refugee and English language learners population, at our school is high -- leaving most of our students without this awesome experience, let alone a movie.
Going to the Henry Doorly Zoo and the IMAX Theater there would be an unforgettable memory for our students. We will have around 45 students who would benefit from this experience and it directly links to our science curriculum. Any amount would be appreciated and a great help! Requesting $755 plus cost reimbursement.

Thank you donors, we have fully funded our trip! If we are unable to attend the zoo trip this academic year, we will apply these funds to our trip next year. We will update you if anything changes. Thanks again!

If this campaign cannot be accomplished this school year, your gifts will be safely held and available for the same use next year.
