The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind

We have been reading the book, "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind" this year. The students have thoroughly enjoyed listening to William Kamkwamba's story. He demonstrates optimism, persistence, flexibility, resilience, creative thinking, and problem solving skills. Watch a little about his story below!

Prepare Fleece Blankets for the Service Project

Wednesday, Feb. 10th, 8:45am

13708 Holly Road

Eden Prairie, MN

On February 10th, the 4th grade team will need volunteers who are willing to help prepare our fleece

blankets for the following day. We will need parents to cut the blankets and fringe them so that the students

can tie them on February 12th. We are expecting to have around 50 or more blankets for our students to tie. We will have a few spare pair of fabric scissors available for use or you can bring your own. If you

would like to volunteer, please RSVP below by Monday, February 9th. We will supply snacks for our helpers on behalf of the 4th grade team! Please arrive anytime after 8:45. Thank you in advance!

RSVPs are enabled for this event.
