6th Grade Visitor

Last week the 6th grade had the good fortune of a visit from Adama from Senegal.  She works at Fletcher Allen and has been in the US for over 10 years.  The students have been studying Africa and actually have pen-pals in Namibia.  The pen-pal project is exciting, as was visiting with Adama.  She told the students about growing up in Senegal, what the educational system was like, how families live and care for each other as well as many other interesting things.  The students had a wide-range of questions for her, and her passion for teaching our students about her homeland was evident.  Here are a couple of photos from that day...


On Friday, April 11th, the whole school will enjoy a concert by the group A2VT - a band who have formed in Winooski but are from Africa.  The members of the band will visit with the 6th grade for a bit before the whole school concert begins.
