Help is needed for two of Castle’s curricula. The following message is from Carlos Kaukahi Labasan Severson, Castle High School, Hawaii, Hoʻoulu ʻOpio Academy of Natural Resources, Agriculture / FFA Advisor.
“Aloha, we are looking for last minute funding for both of our programs this summer: Agriculture Science and Farm Maintenance Curriculum. We understand that you may not be able to fund us but perhaps a contact in your network might be interested in a taxable donation to us. Please help us by getting the word out.
Ag Science Dates: June 4 – July 3, Monday – Friday 8:00am to 2:00 pm
Farm Maintenance Curriculum: 8 hrs per week on a varied schedule June / July. Students get paid Hawaii minimum wage
Why: We were counting on additional funding but we recently found out that our programs do not meet the funding requirements of the grantor.
Amounts we are looking to receive with description: (Any support is appreciated)
$1450 CASE AFNR Science Refill Kit (expendable and supplemental materials):
$600 Light Microscopes and prepared agar petri dishes
$900 Lead Teacher Salary Differential (salary shortage in current budget)
$750 To pay for a third student to participate in Farm Maintenance Curriculum (we had to drop two students –
$1500 to pay for two students, our original number)
$1900 For new rakes, wheel barrels, gasoline, diesel, weed whacking supplies, tractor grease, shovels, irrigation repair materials, etc.
$500 snacks for science
$3400 to pay for a supporting science teacher – we hoped to really increase retention and understanding by having two teachers for about 12 students.
Descriptions of the programs are in the link below:
