May 27, 2015 – Foothill High School


Another thank you in our mailbox.  Foothill High School’s choir, band and orchestra asked DREAM for $2,000 so 55 students could experience traveling to a music festival in Milpitas.  The students performed for a platform of adjudicators who are experts in the field of music and then received constructive feedback concerning the musical aspect of the performance.

Here is a note from the teachers:

We would like to say thank you to you and the team at Project DREAM. This trip was a fantastic learning opportunity for the students and us teachers. It has been ten years since the music department had an opportunity like this for the students. We hope that this experience will encourage more students to join the music program. Many connections were made that can be used to benefit the students in the future.

Thank you, Alex Grambow and Jennifer Jim, Music Teachers

FoothillOaks CivilWar3
On May 1, 70 Foothill Oaks Elementary students visited Gibson Ranch for a Civil War Re-enactment.
One of their teachers, Anita Anderson shared “the students were ecstatic to have an opportunity to ride a bus and see something about history that we studied this year. Even though there were 70 students, they were well-mannered, positive and engaged.  It was a wonderful experience.”

Woodlake SlyPark2

We received an email from Woodlake Elementary teacher, DJ Latcham.  He had taken his 6th grade class to Sly Park for four days.  Just think 37 students + 4 days + $50 per student from DREAM = lots of learning about nature but also about themselves through social programs to conquering their fears.


We had an amazing experience at Sly Park this year as our students were able to experience outdoor education in the most beneficial hands-on environment possible. Without your assistance, we would not be able to continue offering this opportunity to our students. Thank You!

Strauch SierraCollege2

Last month, Dianne Davis, teacher at Hazel Strauch Elementary, helped take 100 2nd graders to Sierra College. This was an exciting trip so close to our local schools where the students visited the Natural History Museum, walked the Nature trail and visited the planetarium.

Dianne told us “this is a field t rip rich in experiences and information.  It will expand the students’ knowledge of the area in which they live.  It encouraged them to strive to reach their goals of attending college.  It also gave them other ideas for careers.
DREAM was very pleased to help these second grade teachers make their dream come true for their students.
