I have spent countless hours fundraising and sweet-talking wealhy donors in order to give between 25-35 4th Grade students from inner-city Flint, the opportunity to see the beautiful state around them. Many have never been beyond the city limits of Flint, so given this chance to broaden their horizons makes it uniquely special each and every year the dedicated chaperones and I do this. Thia allows me and many other teachers I work with an opportunity to go beyond the textbook to educate and offer real-life experiences to our students, Each May, we head towards Mackinaw City. We visit Old Mill State Park, the fort in town and then go over the bridge to the Soo for a dinner cruise. We come back to the city and bunk down for the night. Then the next morning, we head towards Mackinac Island. We take the carriage tour, eat lunch at the fort, and then browse the rest of the afternoon. By the end of the day, we head back to the mainland and go on home. What an amazing trip this is for our students! Thank you for being so accommodating and informative. My students never stop talking about the sights and sounds and the smells of the island! Thank you.
