Welcome Haiti Partners: Mr. Badger and Mr. Antoine

haitiWe have some special  visitors coming to Georgetown this week.  Mrs. Greenlund, one of our second grade teachers, is active each summer in a Haiti Partners Teacher Summit that trains hundreds of teachers in best practice instruction. This video provides background information on the program.

This week Thursday,  two directors from Haiti Partners (Erik Badger and Benaja Antoine) will tour the building and watch Mrs. Greenlund teacher lessons.

When you enter the building, you will see that we have the Haitian flag displayed on the same wall as the American flag.We are excited to host Mr. Badger and Mr. Antoine — and look forward to welcoming them to our school.

Our Connection to Haiti

God's Little AngelsOne of our school families, the Randolf’s, have had their lives transformed quickly by the earthquake in Haiti.  They have been in the process of adopting three beautiful children from God’s Little Children Orphanage and unsure of the time line for adoption–preparing for it to take many, many months.

And, then the earthquake hit.    As Julie Randolf shared, their lives have been transformed in 48 hours.  Due to the hard work put forth by Bethany Christian Services, Dixie from God’s Little Children Orphanage, caring politicians, a private donor for the flight and determine adoptive parents, the Randolf children and many others are now home.

Enjoy the news coverage of this very special arrival!
