  • Holiday Card for kids in Ukraine

    Photo of Students from Hylton HS and Saunders MS creating holiday cards

    As the holidays are fast approaching, it's time to think of ways we can bring joy to others. Russian students from Hylton HS came up with an idea to make holiday cards for children at a Ukrainian orphanage. They stayed for hours after school to create beautiful handmade cards with holiday wishes and personal messages (Saunders students joined the effort too, some of them don't even take Russian! (yet?) Students will continue this project in class, and with help from the Russian Teacher Maria Goebert will send out the cards, along with small gifts, next week. Please see the pictures, we are so proud of the students! The students are also busy in the middle of preparing a New Year (main holiday in Russia) performance and holiday for Russian-speaking children in the community, the performance and interactive activities will be run by the students, in Russian. It will take place December 14 at Chinn Park library. (time to be announced)
