Mothers Supporting Mothers

The Principal’s Club Mother’s Day Tea is a true highlight in the month of May here at school. Thank you to all the moms who joined us for this special afternoon. We were just shy of full participation. It means a great deal to come together as a community of mothers, especially when it is an opportunity to support other mothers, with significantly less resources, in other countries. The Shoe Drive was enormously successful and Lorna (from Children of Hope Uganda) now has several suitcases of new and gently used shoes to deliver to the children in Barlonyo. Her student interns will be travelling to Barlonyo in May and June. The shoes will be on the feet of our young friends very soon! In many cases, this will be the first pair of shoes these children will have ever owned. Marie would like to thank Kara, Liz, and all the Principal’s Club members for putting on such a great event. Special mention goes out to the club members who volunteered to speak  at the tea. Well done!

The final Principal’s Club fundraiser, The Lemonade & Cookie Sale, is scheduled for Monday, June 5th from 3-4pm. Look for the lemonade stand on the front lawn. Sales are by donation. Thank you in advance for continued support of the good work the children are doing for Children of Hope Uganda. The 2016/17 tally of funds raised will be announced at the Final Assembly on June 15. Lorna is always in attendance to share the good news.
