Caring is a Universal Language
After the tragedy that occurred in August in El Paso, Texas, two teachers asked if anyone would be willing to send words of comfort and encouragement to their elementary school students. Our Spanish students answered their call by making bilingual cards. “These cards will brighten their day,” said one student. “They will know someone cares about them,” said another. Students made dozens of beautiful cards to share with two schools in El Paso.
