BENEFITING: WORLD COMMUNICATIONS CHARTER SCHOOL
EVENT DATE: Jun 15, 2013
World Communications Charter School is an inner city charter school in the heart of Philadelphia. Seven students and I are fundraising for a trip to Puerto Rico.
In the past year, my students and I created a Spanish II Honors community that is taught in Spanish 70%+ of the time. We are excited to practice our Spanish in an authentic Latin American setting. In December of last year, our Board of Trustees approved a trip to Puerto Rico. This is the first trip of this nature that will occur at our charter school, and we are all very excited to make this trip a reality.
The vast majority of my students come from West, South, and North Philadelphia, where drugs and gun-related violence are rampant. Many of them have never left the east coast, much less traveled on an airplane. Not only am I excited to have my students travel to Puerto Rico, but I am even more excited to have them experience the result of our hard work and dedication. We are currently in the process of raising funds for the trip. Any small donation counts and I would be super, super grateful if you could donate and/or spread the word.
Help us expand our World!
