I am sending this message to neighbors who I know are interested in Peter Howell school. Please feel free to share it with others I might have overlooked.
An upcoming Kitt Peak Science overnight retreat for 5th graders is described below. There is a need for assistance, with a contribution deadline of October 1, 2015.
Could you please spread the word to encourage financial support for sponsorship of this event?
Nancy Huff, volunteer at Peter Howell School
An upcoming event could use your help by sponsoring a student. Peter Howell 5th graders are exploring space and the solar system this year, and to experience science the way scientists do, they will be taking a trip to Kitt Peak Observatory for an overnight observation under the stars.
Getting away from the city is a rare and special treat for many students. They cannot wait to see the stars through research-grade telescopes and work with experts in the field. Howell Teachers want to offer scholarships to students whose families can use the help. You can donate as little as $1, or for $40, you can sponsor a student astronomer to go on the camping trip of a lifetime. This amount includes the cost of food, transportation, and the Kitt Peak facilities and campground.
All of the students deserve the opportunity to learn and grow, regardless of cost! If we can help them reach their goal of $1500, 30 student astronomers will be able to go on the field trip at no cost, plus they can provide 15 partial scholarships to help families ease the cost of the trip.
Deadline is October 1st, so please donate soon, if you can. Your check can be made out to Peter Howell Elementary and mailed to or dropped off at Peter Howell Elementary School, 401 N Irving Ave. Tucson, AZ 85711. Thanks in advance!
