It’s a new year! I hope 2015 is off to a fantastic start for all of you. I have a feeling it is going to be a great year; this is the year ALL my students will be transitioning to high school. Certainly it is both exciting and probably a little nerve-wracking as well.
Prior to the holiday break, my Me to We Club held a Winter Wonderland Market. This was our first ever market and it was an incredible success. Students created crafts, art and baked goods which were then sold at reasonable prices over two lunch periods. I’m thrilled to announce that we made almost $450!!! Most of that money will be used to help empower women in India as we will be purchasing goats for them to have as both a food source (milk, cheese) and an income generator. The rest of the money will be used to help people living in poverty here in Victoria. I am very proud of all my students who took part in this worthwhile event.
Word of the week is “goats”.
