Visiting Author Christine Ieronimo

We are very excited to announce that Christine Ieronimo will be joining us at school on Thursday, April 20th from 10:00am-12:00pm to talk to students about her book, A Thirst for Home, and her involvement in The Gimbichu Project. The project was set up by Mr. and Mrs. Ieronimo after returning to their adopted daughter's birth village to find her older sister. They support her education and that of 9 other children. They also work with the local health clinic and have had successful projects there as well. To learn more about Christine and the project, please go to http://www.christineieronimo.com/

Parents and other family members are welcome to join us in what should be a very special presentation. Students in grades 1-5 will see Christine from 10:00-10:45, and 6-8 graders from 11:00-11:45. Please contact the front office if you would like to join us so that we can get a head count.
