We are currently trying to raise the funds to purchase a small portable building where we can teach our classes. Our facility is very "rustic" without power and running water so, the portable building will be wired for a generator to run lights and AC so everyone can learn out of the elements. We have already purchased the learning materials, a TV with a DVD player and VHS, we also have a very extensive library, over 300 books, videos & DVD's, that we will finally be able to share with people as we currently have nowhere to keep it. This project is ready to go, we just need the portable building.

Our 7th-grade class is researching elephants and deciding on how we will accomplish our goals. We will be assembling elephant information kits, making awareness posters, having bake sales, setting up donation jars and designing t-shirts and selling them. These proceeds will go to an elephant sanctuary and wildlife sanctuary to help purchase more land that will be protected for the elephants to live in a safer environment.
