40 Weeks running

We are so excited! Want to know why? We are a small class of eleven in the small town of Potomac, MT, but we have some BIG dreams for our 8th grade year!

Each year the graduating class is given the opportunity to organize and raise funds for a hands-on, learning based, off campus capstone experience. Our class has chosen to go to the World Stride’s Marine Institute in Tampa Bay, Florida. There, we will be exploring, in person, the unique Mangrove Ecosystem as well as having an in-depth lesson about manatees, followed by experiencing the adaptations of these amazing endangered species. In addition to learning about mollusks and arthropods, we will be performing a squid dissection. One major highlight will be visiting and assisting at a marine animal rehabilitation center. Talk about taking Science out of the classroom and into real life situations! These extraordinary experiences will be the catalyst to open our eyes and our minds to a world filled with opportunities completely unlike what we know here in Montana.

Our challenge now is to ask others, like you, to be a part of this amazing opportunity. We are asking for your support in helping us raise the funds we need to make these experiences happen. Would you please consider investing in our class of eleven, and in our education as we focus on our future? We have a steep goal ahead of us, so any amount that you can contribute would be deeply appreciated.

Since spreading kindness and goodness is a team effort, for every donation we receive, we plan to give back. As a THANK YOU to you, our donor, we will pay it forward using the main resources that we have as young adults - our time and energy.  We will offer our services in your name to one of these three local community organizations: Animeals, a local senior citizen’s center, and the Missoula Food Bank.

We believe that when we make our goal and after we leave the Atlantic Ocean behind, our lives will be vastly changed. We predict a new respect for our wildlife, a broader view of our world ecosystems, and for some of us, the chance to find a future passion or career.

Thank you for being our supporter, for believing in us and encouraging us to dream BIG and make this adventure happen!
