Churchill’s Rachel Carson Academy Seeks Donations

Speeding toward a goal of $20,000 by March 15

The Rachel Carson Environmental Science Academy is driven, but changes in the District’s transportation policies may put up a roadblock to students’ learning. This year teachers in the program have limited access to the District’s activity vans and these vans have been a crucial transportation component for the Rachel Carson Academy for 17 years. Fortunately, the teachers and the District’s transportation department have a plan to navigate around this obstacle.

“Having access to these vans to take students out into the world is vital to our curriculum and values,” said Helen Haberman, a veteran teacher of the program. “We take students out twice weekly for field studies trips to complete restoration work along the Willamette River and Amazon Creek, watch salmon spawn, or learn how a log mill operates. Put simply, without the vans, our program, as we have created it, will no longer exist.”

Sadly, after 17 years of taking students outside — about 150 students a year — the future of Field Studies experiences hangs on the rack. The academy is shifting gears to drive up a steep mountain to purchase a district approved activity van. Why is this important? Like a drive train on a bus that supplies the power and torque to move the wheels, the program depends on the van to literally power the students to hands-on learning experiences crucial to the Rachel Carson curriculum. The good news is that if program organizers can raise $20,000, the district has generously offered to pay the rest of the considerable cost needed to purchase a new van. But we have to move quickly. Please donate today by clicking on the big red button below and following the directions on the Eugene Education Fund website. Make sure you earmark your donation by typing Rachel Carson Van in the “Where Do You Want Your Support to Go?” box on the EEF form. For more information about this project contact Mary Beth Hepp-Elam, School-to-Careers Coordinator, 541-790-5262 or CHS Principal, BJ Blake, 541-790-5100.

Five per cent of the amount raised will go back to EEF for equity grants to be used across the District. Churchill High School benefits annually from the equity grants to the tune of approximately $5,000. Another 5% will be assessed for EEF operational costs and the remaining $18,000 will fund the RC Van Project.
