Paola Pérez, one of our third-grade teachers, came up with an amazing way to create awareness about what is going on in Puerto Rico post-Maria. She coordinated a Skype reunion so that students and teachers across the country could share their life experiences of our life now after Hurricane Maria.
Juno Nifosi is a teacher that used to live in Puerto Rico but now lives in Colorado. With her 3rd grade students, they decided to collect supplies for Puerto Rican hurricane victims. Mrs. Nifosi wanted her students to meet Puerto Rican students so that they could relate on a personal level and establish a connection with children that are just like them but are in a completely different environment.
