Appreciation for our Solar Lights

In November, we engaged in a school wide service project called,  Mindful Giving.  This special project was a school wide endeavor with a focus on donating non-perishable items for our local Water of Life Food Pantry and the donation of $2 per child to support our global project, supplying solar lights for a school in  Uganda Africa.

Your donations brought in enough money to   purchase 48 lights for the teachers and staff at Nyaka School.

Ali Portilo, the director of the K LIGHT project provided photos (above) of the staff receiving their lights.  It is a remarkable series of photos that demonstrate our ability to change lives through our mindful giving.  Thank you to everyone for making this possible!

Week 11: November 12-16, 2012

The staff and I want to thank you for attending conferences last week.   We value your support and guidance as we work together for the benefit of your children.

This is the final week for our MINDFUL GIVING PROJECTS.  Donations of non-perishable food items for the WATER of LIFE Pantry and our GLOBAL solar light project.

The photos below are of Miss VanArkel’s class using the Solar Lights during their learning time.  By using the lights, we develop some appreciation for how important these lights are to the teachers and students at Nyaka Primary School in Uganda.  Each class will use the lights in their classroom sometime this week.  #spreadalittlelight

Highlights of our week are posted below.  Have a great week ahead!

First Grader’s Learn About the Solar Light

 Mrs. O’Rourke’s first graders used the solar lights to read and complete their writing work.  Because of the sunshine, the lights were charged so that they could provide light through the day.

To learn more about our Mindful Giving Projects visit this link.  We would like each child to bring two non-perishable foods and $2 to help care for others.
