But they prevailed with the help of special education teacher Debra Wehrman and instructional aide Connie Groenewald.

Trevor and McKayla are students with special needs and Wehrman and Groenewald work closely with them and with all of their teachers.

Both helped Trevor and McKayla with the project, assisting them with the initial identification of Borders, the research into her life, the choice of a memorial and preparing for a presentation in front of their class.

Using the reality TV show “Shark Tank” as a guide, the class pretends they have a limited amount of resources to fund a project and that they are each trying to get their project funded.

They present their projects to their peers who then vote on whether or not they should be funded.

Trevor and McKayla received affirmative votes from almost their entire class.

After the sandbox was built, complete with a plaque commemorating Borders made by students in a woods class, Trevor and McKayla wrote thank you notes to everyone who helped them.

“It was a team effort,” Trevor said.

And teamwork and perseverance are certainly important lessons to pass on.
