Wolfe School Partners with Global Relief Organization
As a part of their school’s global initiative, Wolfe students partnered with the world relief organization, World Vision, to help others in third world nations. Students raised money to help provide desperately needed clean water. We are proud to announce that we raised over six hundred dollars!
Many students emptied their piggy banks, gave up their spending money, and asked friends and family members to help with this important global project. Each student that raised money had their name written on a water droplet to be placed on a display in our school’s entrance. Additionally, each student that raised money had their name placed in a drawing to throw a pie in Mr. Deming’s face. On the last day of school, all students had a great time celebrating their accomplishments in raising money for such a wonderful global cause.Full Story
Water for the World
As a part of our school’s global initiative, Wolfe students spent last week learning about “Water for the World.” The lessons were a part of our school’s current events curriculum called News-2-You. Students learned about a new invention called the “Slingshot.” The Slingshot converts dirty water into clean water. Slingshots are housed in “Ekocenters” which are located in nations around the world that desperately need access to clean water. Ekocenters are a partner project of the Coca-Cola Company and are “a social enterprise initiative designed to empower community well-being by bringing safe water, solar power and mobile communications, as well as basic goods and services, to underserved communities -- in six countries in Africa and Asia in 2015.” (http://www.coca-colacompany.com/ekocenter/)
As a part of this cultural awareness project, students read lessons, participated in class discussions, watched informational videos, and completed science projects.Full Story
