Youth Uplift Challenge/ International Women's Day


-Last week, Sky Class participated in the Youth Uplift Challenge which was brought to our attention by a former Sky Class student who is now in Upper School. This is an event in which each student cut out and decorated paper hands. For every hand we send in, $1.90 will be donated to Save The Children's programs. These programs help underprivileged youth in countries around the world with their basic needs, education, and support that they need to succeed. 

-On International Women's Day, Sky Class took some time to learn about a few powerful women in history. We read the books Drum Dream Girl by Margarita Engle, Amelia and Eleanor Go For a Ride by Pam Munoz Ryan, and Show Way by Jaqueline Woodson. We learned about the incredible contributions these three women made to our society followed by an activity inspired by these women and others in history. 

-Please keep a lookout for information about Spirit Week which will be next week from 3/20-3/24.
