Ain't No Mountain High Enough

With all the budget cuts happening in the world of education, it can feel like scaling a mountain to get funding for any of the extras.  But, as Marvin and Tammi (yes, we've got to show a little Motown love) told us, "ain't no mountain high enough."  That is just what Hamtramck High School business teacher, John Rostek decided.  He has decided to climb Mt. Denali in Alaska this summer in order to raise money for extra-curricular student activities.  He hopes to raise $1 for every foot of the mountain.  That would mean 20,320 dollars raised for student activities.  Some of those activities include student council, robotics and honor societies.  The activities funded through this effort (and more to come afterward) will benefit every Hamtramck Public School student, from Kindergarten through 12th grade.

Over the next weeks, we will be posting more information about our mountain climbing teacher, his guide, the mountain, and stories from students (past and present) about the importance extra-curricular activities played in their lives.

Our PayPal is in the works, but if you like what you've read so far, please consider making a donation to:
