A few months ago, a group of sixth grade girls started their own chapter of an international fundraising organization, Girl Up, here at Anderson Middle School. Girl Up is a UN Organization whose aim is to create comprehensive programs that give adolescent girls in developing countries an equal chance for education, health, social and economic opportunities. Over the course of the school year, the girls have put a lot of time and energy into planning exciting fundraisers to raise money for the organization. They have sold pi(e)s at Math Night, bracelets in the school yard, and have also held lemonade and bake sales on the weekends. Over Spring Break, three members of Girl Up, along with their advisor, Ms. Lazarus, had the opportunity to visit Google HQ to make a presentation about Girl Up and collect donations. The girls are thrilled to report that they have already surpassed their fundraising goal for the year!
The Anderson School will continue to focus on character development and mindfulness practice in the 2016-17 school year. Our monthly character traits will be woven into all of our activities and practices. Kindness is our core focus. Here is Mr. Nahabedian's first art project on the theme, weaving paper "fabric" into acts of kindness interpreted with figures in motion.
