Schools


Can we make a school to school connection?

Found this from wikipedia - "Haiti counts 15,200 primary schools, of which 90% are non-public and managed by the communities, religious organizations or NGOs.[2] " http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Education_in_Haiti

Can we connect with the 10% that are public schools? How do we find them?
If you are trying to make a connection, let us know here:

(Dave Sapp, Kim Funnell, Laurie Warner)
Hearts for Haiti--Penny War, Teachers will have milk jugs that students will put donations into. When they make a donation they will receive a heart, write their name on it and post it on the windows of the school store. The "jugs" will be on display during the day for students to see what class is winning. Winning class teacher will where a "special outfit." If the total weight of the project weighs more than 50 pounds the principal will kiss a piglet.
