Mary Walter 5th Grade to the Baltimore Aquarium
Mary Walter Elementary is seeking your support to sponsor students to attend their 5th grade trip to the Baltimore Aquarium. For some students, this will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit the magnificent aquarium and experience first-hand what they are learning in the classroom. 5th grade students study oceans, adaptations, habitats, resources, weather and more as they prepare for the 5th grade Standards of Learning (SOL) test.
Mary Walter Elementary is a Title 1 school with over 50% of the students on free and reduced lunch. The cost of the trip is $60 per person and many families depend on an extensive payment plan to try to cover the fee.
The cost for 73 children, 6 teachers and 2 coach buses is $4,700. The school is providing lunch.
$1,600 has already been raised by the Mary Walter PTO to bring the overall cost down per student. The remaining balance is $3,100.
The Fauquier Excellence in Education Foundation is accepting donations that will sponsor children to attend and help families in need.
For $40, you can sponsor a child to attend. All donation amounts are welcome and appreciated.
Our goal is to fully fund the remaining balance.
Thank you for your support!
