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.

Every student in the building received a SPARK: Spread a Little Light wrist band.
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
