About this Campaign
Elliott Elementary is a Title I 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 strong connection between background knowledge and a student's ability to read. The first grade scholars at Elliott Elementary are learning about the solar system and we would love to take them to visit the planetarium at Morrill Hall.
This experience will help our scholars gain necessary 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 $790 plus cost reimbursement to pay for transportation and admittance for our scholars and staff attending. We appreciate your donation to help our youngest Elliott Owls experience something outside of our Owl's Nest!
