Do you remember going on school field trips when you were a child?  I remember quite a few.  Who didn't love a day "off" from school, to go to fun things with your friends!?  The trip that is coming to mind right now, was a trip to Gettysburg when I was in middle school.  I was new to the state of Pennsylvania, and I had never been before.  As someone who was always a bit of a history buff, and a total nerd for ghost stories, Gettysburg was right up my alley!  I. Loved. It.  To this day, I still love going to Gettysburg, even though I've been many times since.  While I am absolutely terrified to let my babies out of my sight and reallyyyyy don't even want to think about sending my girls to school yet (don't want to...but of course, I have...that time is coming up way too fast!), I am excited for all of the fun new experiences that field trips like the ones I enjoyed as a child will bring to them.  I was saddened (but not surprised) to learn that, according to the American Association of School Administrators, school districts all over the country are cutting out field trips by 56%.  More than half!  How many students might never be able to go on a field trip because of this cut?  They will miss out on some amazing hands on experiences that have the potential to fuel the love of learning.

Lunchables wants to help, and so they have launched a program called "Field Trips For All."  This is the first project from their new program: Project Potential.  They hope to help give children these amazing experiences and opportunities.

Did you know, that anyone over the age of six, can can nominate a deserving classroom by going to  Out of the nominations received,  50 classrooms will be chosen for an awesome and educational field trip experience.  Maybe there is a classroom you would like to nominate?  I'd love to nominate the classroom of one of my favorite teachers, from elementary school!  :o)  I'd like to ask you to spread the word, so that as many children as possible might have a chance at this opportunity!  I'd love to hear about your nominations!  :o)
