Learning Bridge Charter School EL After School program has placed change jars around the community.
After the island of Haiti was hit by Hurricane Matthew the students conducted their own research to see how ten students from Ely could help children in Haiti.
The students were engaged in authentic education, as they learned about the social economics and geographical aspects of Haiti. The change jars will be collected and the
money sent to K.I.D.S. (Kids in Distressed Situations). An organization that allows kids to help kids.
The organization was researched and money, toiletries, new socks and underwear will go directly to Haiti.
Thanks to our community for encouraging the education of all students.
Special thanks to the businesses that gave the students permission to place jars. Bath Lumber, Flower Basket, Sportsworld, Silver State Restaurant, Economy Drug and Garnett Merchantile.
Octavio Perez and Mrs. Darcy Evers also made a presentation at the Chamber of Commerce luncheon meeting in
The students at Learning Bridge are also collecting change for the community service project.
