Our Spanish Club is also working on some special projects. We did OUTSTANDING selling pulseras, or in English bracelets, made by children in an orphanage in Nigaragua. The proceeds from the sale go to help fund education to these children. The bracelets are $5 and come with a name and picture of the child who made it. The founders of the organization were so impressed with our efforts! We raised $1,890 which was one of the most successful sales they have ever seen in over 260 schools. The money we raised has allowed one of the students in Nicaragua to attend college for a full four years! For more information on this project check out www.pulseraprojects.org.
Also, our 7th grade students were on the news this year. KTVE (Channel 10) did a story on technology in education and came to film our 7th graders working on a weather forecast on Prezi.
