Expressing Thanks for Mindful Giving

Mrs. Bohl’s Kindergarteners

On Friday, November 16 we concluded our two week period of 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 to Nyaka School in Uganda Africa.

I am happy to announce the results of our mindful giving projects.

The solar lights for our GLOBAL Mindful Giving project are making their way to all classrooms over the next two weeks.  Students and teachers are using them for small group learning, read alouds and other activities.

Lights must be charged each day so that they are ready for learners the next day.   These lights will be purchased for Nyaka School in Uganda.  To find out more about this project, read our 2 ACTS OF MINDFUL GIVING blog post.
