1000 Paper Cranes Project

Students will be creating 1,000 paper cranes in advisory in the weeks to come. The cranes will be strung together inside the school. The theme is to work together towards a common goal. According to Japanese legend, anyone who makes 1000 paper cranes will have a wish granted. Our Manitou Springs Middle School collective goal will be for everyone to stay healthy and remain in school through the end of the year. The Thousand Paper Cranes Project will also be featured in this year’s World Language and Culture Night.
