Belmont Elementary

Title I Planetarium Field Trip

During third quarter, our group of approximately 130 fourth graders learn all about space and our solar system. This field trip to the planetarium would give our students the opportunity to experience firsthand what they are learning in the classroom.

Students love learning all about the Earth, moon, sun, and other planets. They enjoy differentiating rotation and revolution using movement in the classroom. However, many parts of this space unit are very abstract and can be difficult for students to understand because much of space is not visible to the naked eye.

The visit to the planetarium would allow students to make abstract connections to our classroom learning. Our students come from diverse backgrounds and many don't receive these opportunities on their own. This would be a memorable experience for the majority of our students. Requesting $1,320 plus cost reimbursement.

Lied Center Performance 1984

The Science Focus Program would like to take students to the Lied Center to see the live performance of 1984. 

"In the throes of unprecedented challenges to privacy, truth and personal expression, Aquila Theatre brings 1984, George Orwell’s cautionary novel, to the Lied stage. As our modern world grapples with the threats and benefits of technological integration, Orwell’s prescient story resonates around the globe as individuals, systems and governments clash against political repression. 'Big Brother' is always watching." (Lied Center website). 

The experience will allow students to make connections to our classroom learning. 

It is a $5 ticket for each student to attend the play. For 95 students and staff, the total requested is $475 plus cost reimbursement.

Funding for Yearbooks

Please consider donating to this Fund a Need campaign that will provide students who cannot afford to purchase a yearbook with the 2019-2020 Park Middle School yearbook. 

A little bit about Park Middle School:  Park is a school of approximately 900 students. Of our 900 students we are nearly 68% free and reduced lunch. Those demographics tell us that for around 612 students, affording a yearbook isn't a feasible option.  Each yearbook costs $22.25 and therefore a contribution of $445 ($507.42 after fees) would provide 20 students with a yearbook and ultimately lasting memories as well.
