Grant Category: Music & Wellness
Funding Goal: $500
I am seeking this grant to fund my student’s participation in the Parks and Recreation Above and Beyond Ropes Course. This course provides a unique opportunity. An opportunity my student’s would not ordinarily have. They will be given the chance to bond with each other and learn to work together for the common good of the class. The facilitators of this course are highly trained in teamwork, and team building strategies through physical challenges. The program will benefit my students greatly, by enabling them to make a connection between overcoming challenges physically and overcoming challenges academically.
They will also identify their personal strengths and weaknesses while becoming more at ease with being outside of their normal comfort zone. By identifying ways to overcome and solve the challenges physically, they will experience different levels of success and comfort with new and unfamiliar situations. I will directly relate this to their work in the classroom environment.
