About this Campaign

Elliott Elementary is a Title 1 school in the heart of Lincoln, NE. The students, families, and staff at Elliott are passionate about education. Elliott's minority student enrollment is 74% and our families speak 23 different languages. A number of our families have moved to the United States within the last 3 years.

Our school has a goal of 100% of students being on track to graduate and it begins with our youngest scholars. Research has shown the connection between background knowledge and a student's ability to read. A lot of our kindergarten scholars have not had the opportunity to visit the Lincoln Children's Zoo and learn about animals while seeing them close up!

This experience will help our scholars build needed background knowledge which will positively impact them in all aspects of their education, especially reading, writing, and science. Your contribution will help bring to life the things they are learning in school.

We are requesting $603.00 plus the cost of reimbursement to send our scholars on a learning adventure to the zoo. This experience will benefit around 50 of our youngest learners. Thank you so much for supporting our youngest scholars in being on track to graduate.
