    Global Connections

    The Global Connections Club was formed to teach students about global issues, and give them a chance to respond to needs in the global community. Global awareness is of paramount importance for our students as they enter a global economy. Our club is student run and each year we choose issues related to topics the students want to address. In addition, our club has a long-standing connection to a school in Ghana.

    Meetings are on alternate Wednesdays at lunch in room 916. Our activities have included:

    ·       Fundraising for Living Springs School in Ghana

    ·       Guest speakers to teach us about the Peace Corp and village life in Ghana

    ·       “Learning at Lunch” presentations such as clean water initiatives and microfinance in developing countries

    ·       Jewelry making with beads made in Ghana (fundraising for our school)

    ·       Movies and Book discussions about women’s rights in developing nations

    Students in all grades are welcome to attend club meetings.
