Mrs. Shipow What an exciting event to be part of, both for the students AND the teachers. I am so proud of all our first graders for creating such beautiful African wares and selling them to earn money for such a worthy cause. They learned about other cultures, they contributed their time and effort, and they had fun! This is something they will remember for a long time! (And so will I!)
