"A Box of Books" project. About 15 small boxes of storybooks and other resources were donated by the Jefferson MS students to the children of the Philippines to start a library in a small barrio in Camarines Norte, Philippines. With this intercultural outreach project, it is hoped that our students and community participants will acquire the skills needed to be active, informed citizens who value diversity and promote cultural understanding by working collaboratively to address challenges that are inherent in living in an interconnected world. Principal Pride has been very supportive of this community service project and has communicated with several community members for our "Spring Cleaning Book Drive".
Many thanks to our reliable students, to Ms. Compton for coordinating the books, Mr. Levi-Goerlich for some great ideas, and to all who sponsored our boxes. Indeed we can do more when we all work together! Happy Holidays!
