Children’s Workshop School - 4th Grade Farm Trip Fundraiser
The Children’s Workshop School, founded in 1993, is a progressive public elementary school located on the East Village of Manhattan. CWS strives for students to be open-minded and compassionate; to gain a sense of themselves and others; and to understand and appreciate the diversity of the community. Children are guided and supported to fulfill their creative, physical, emotional, social and intellectual potential. Our goal is for our children to recognize that they have the power and resources to effect change. It is our hope that children will grow to be responsible, critical and caring members of a pluralistic society.
About the Children’s Workshop School - 4th Grade Farm Trip Fundraiser:
As we celebrate the New Year, we appeal to you, and your extended family members (grandparents, aunts and uncles), to make a contribution to the PTA for the 4th Grade Farm Trip scheduled for February 10th - 14 (split weeks) 2020 to raise nearly $11,500. 100% of your contribution goes to the programming that we have come to rely on for our children at CWS. The Children’s Workshop School PTA is a registered non-profit and your gift is tax deductible. (Tax ID: 13-389-3251).
Each year, the 4th grade class from the Children’s Workshop School in lower Manhattan takes a trip to a working farm in New York’s Catskill Mountains. For most of the children, not only is it their first time away from home, but it’s also their first time on a farm, surrounded by animals, fields, and nature. They milk cows, feed pigs, gather freshly laid eggs and learn about their surroundings. It is an amazing, enriching experience, fostering both independence and a connection to nature and farm work that not many children at public schools in New York City get to experience. In the past we had a generous donation of many years standing that covered the costs of this part of our curriculum. Sadly, that annual $10,000 gift has ended, leaving Children’s Workshop School looking for the funding. There are two 4th grade classes going for 2 nights each in February (10th-14th) 2020, each class a separate part of the week.
The week costs approximately $11,500
To that end, we are reaching out to family and friends, and their families and friends, to help us meet our goal. Won’t you help us continue our school’s tradition?
Please spread the word and share the GoFundMe to successfully fundraise for the children at Children's Workshop School.
