What a difference a dollar makes
We work hard to create memorable experiences for our students. It is a collaborative effort from not only our staff but also our funders. The letter below is a passionate declaration from classroom teacher Jaime Baker of Welby Montessori, to a funder who provided a Schoolership that allowed her students to experience a KSS School Program. I feel her letter does a great job of describing the impact KSS can have on students.
"Thank you so much for your generous donation to sponsor our students at Keystone Science School. Our students come from severely impacted backgrounds that limit their ability to experience the outdoors and science together. Many of the fifth graders who came to Keystone with us had never been in the mountains before. It was an amazing experience for them and they learned about themselves as well as about science during our trip.
The experience increased their self-confidence and built stronger relationships among them and with us, their teachers. They learned that they can try new experiences and have fun figuring it out. I know that this experience is one that my students will never forget. It is a positive memory and experience that will remind them that learning can be fun."
