Local 4th graders will get to take a trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, thanks to KSBY and SLO Dental's One Class at a Time grant.
We surprised Katherine Vause's fourth grade class at Issac Miller Elementary School in Santa Maria Thursday with the $250 grant.
Vause says it'll help cover the cost of the field trip for those students who can't afford to pay.
"We'll have a chance to see the marine animals in their natural habitat," Vause said, "We'll get to see the ocean, more of the coast of California, which is part of what we study in 4th grade."
Vause says for many students, this will be the first opportunity to see the sea life at the aquarium.
