$13,864! That’s how much the DREAM board awarded last night to help 371 students and their teachers:
60 Creative Connections 6th graders will attend Alliance Redwoods next May for five days.This is the fourth time DREAM has helped make this trip possible. Among other things they will learn about redwood forest ecology, marine ecology and tide pooling, stream ecology and watershed education, night ecology, astronomy along with challenge courses and teambuilding.
DREAM sent $2,950 to Hillsdale 6th graders to attend Grizzly Creek science camp next spring. Their teacher checked many boxes on the application including increased self-confidence, improved student attendance and/or behavior, increased interest in college, team building among students and connections between science curriculum and reality.
Orchard 6th and 8th graders will have a better understanding of the effects population, additives, etc have on the PH in our ocean and how that effects many things in our environment. DREAM was happy to help with a $3,250 check.
Rio Tierra Junior High will send 33 6th, 7th and 8th graders to Marin Headlands Institute for the third year. The teachers’ outcomes are for the students to make a personal connection to the science topics they are leaning in class, have a better appreciation of different ecosystems and increase their team building skills by stepping out of their personal comfort zones.
54 Madison 6th grade students were sent to Grizzly Creek Science camp – DREAM helped with a $2,700 check for the fourth time. Students, your teachers rock for making this experience possible!
For the first time we received an application from Castori Elementary to take 100 3rd graders to the Crocker Art Museum and B Street Theatre. They will venture outside their neighborhood to explore our city center…..we will tell you about their adventure in a future post!!
