Field Trips For Everyone

I remember when I was in elementary school going on what seemed like a gazillion field trips. There was nothing quite as exciting as getting on that big yellow school bus, lunch bag in hand, and heading off for a fun day away from the classroom. Even having a parent along as a chaperon didn't dampen the thrill of a trip to a far away museum or the zoo.

My daughter has been lucky enough to go on some field trips, but not nearly as many as I did. Schools are cutting field trips out of their budgets altogether, or allowing only one or two at most per class. According to a 2009 report from The American Association of School Administrators, it’s estimated that over the course of the current school year, the number of school districts eliminating field trips will increase by 56 percent. That’s more than 30,000 schools. I personally think that is a shame. Field trips add so much to the learning experience and have been such a staple of schools for so long. It makes me sad to think my two little ones may miss out on the excitement of boarding the school bus and heading off with classmates for a day of exploration and fun.

Field Trips For All is the first effort from the Lunchables Team’s new initiative called Project Potential. Aimed at empowering kids with opportunities to help them reach their full potential, Project Potential will provide enriching experiences kids might otherwise not have. I think this is such a great thing Lunchables is doing, and I hope everyone who hears about it participates!

Anyone 6 years of age or older can nominate a deserving classroom by going to http://www.lunchables.com/potential/ and submitting a nomination. From all nominations received, 50 classrooms will be selected to go on an inspiring, educational experience. Easy, right? So let's get voting and help send some lucky kids on  an exciting adventure aboard the big yellow school bus!
