Can you change the world? 4th graders at Bridgeport can!
4th Grade students at Bridgeport Elementary participated in a service project where they brought in clothes to send to an orphanage in Uganda. The children they helped had been rescued from the streets and placed into Save Our Street Children Uganda which is a program designed to make a difference in their country. Bridgeport 4th graders then worked on writing pieces about how they could change the world. Students created a bond with the children they helped in Uganda and even Skyped with them to share more about their interests, education, and culture. They look forward to working more closely with them throughout the school year. 
Pay It Forward
There is a wonderful service opportunity going on right now through November 22, for our Backpack Snacks food program.  The Joining Hands Family Resource Center, which services Collins Lane and Hearn Elementary is sponsoring the event. Please see the attached flyer for more specific information.
