YOU CAN HELP: Support outdoor education for Highland Park Elementary 5th graders

Outdoor education at IslandWood is a tradition for many local students – but some need help to get there. A Highland Park Elementary teacher asked us to share this request with you:

IslandWood is just around the corner for our fabulous fifth graders, but we are in real need of funding this year! I’ve created a GoFundMe to subsidize the cost for students, but we need help raising the money. Please consider donating and/or sending the link out to your networks. Every dollar matters!

Here’s the GoFundMe link you can use to help.

    This was an amazing experience for my child last year! I really hope that they can raise enough, its so important to have these experiences in nature. SPS cannot cover it so as a community, its great to see support. I know they SHOULD etc, but reality is that this is where we are at. So for me, I fight for change, but support the kids caught in the middle. Please consider if you are able

    Is it possible to run a cash donation by the school ? I feel uncomfortable using go fund me because they don’t use paypal. I’d love to make a contribution to such a great program though!
