Shining Hope for Community (SHOFCO) visits 2nd Grade
Ms. Eden, a student at Wesleyan and a member of SHOFCO visited the 2nd Grade Social Studies classes this week to teach students about a community in Kibera, Kenya. We learned about the similarities and differences of Kibera and Middletown. Students interested in being Pen Pals with students at the Kibera School for Girls will be able to correspond by letter and hopefully by video. We learned that there are no public schools in Kibera and what kids want more than anything is "to go to school and learn." We feel lucky to live in Middletown and be able to go to Macdonough School. Eden will be returning to Macdonough soon to do some follow up activites with students.
