SISCL Supports Build On!
SISCL has been working diligently as a team to brainstorm and carry out various ways to earn money. Student Lighthouse Team created crafty items which were sold to students during four lunch periods the week of October 27th, earning $ 642.50 in just one week! The craft sales will continue each month throughout the year so please be aware of notices sent home with those dates!
We have also been recycling broken crayons in SISCL’s classrooms, to melt and create fun and useful crafts for students to buy as well. As we team up together this year, our hope is to provide students in Malawi with the same educational opportunity we are so lucky to have here.

Teams of students put their colorful creations -- ranging in size from four to 12 inches -- through their paces on table-size white game-boards marked off with blue lines. The kids steered their robots up and down the game-board, pausing them to accomplish tasks such as scooping up tiny balls and obstacles littering the playing field. READ MORE
