Garrison teacher Amy Tyburski’s fourth grade class launched a GoFundMe page yesterday to raise money for a trip to Philadelphia to learn about the Revolutionary War.
Though the school’s PTA provided most of the funds, generous donors helped the class achieve their goal of $400 within hours yesterday. However, Tyburski and her students are trying to set a new goal.
“We’re hoping to raise more to hopefully to go on another tour while we are there,” Tyburski said in an email to Borderstan.
The field trip and tours are part of the school’s expeditionary learning model, which is designed to allow students to experience firsthand what they learned in the classroom.
