The “Kids” Connection

Elementary schools in the U.S. are developing on-going communications and support for students at Sacred Heart School. Starting in 2009, third grade students at Convent Elementary in San Francisco collected funds each year to provide their counter-parts in Dangriga with news desks and classroom fans. The fall of 2011 began a new partnership between first grade students and teachers of the Haverford School in Pennsylvania and Sacred Heart in Dangriga. The students not only exchange letters and videos; they learn about each other’s world. Each Thanksgiving weekend, the Haverford first and second graders sponsor a “Turkey Bowl” soccer tournament. The proceeds go toward needed school supplies for Sacred Heart.
