SUMMER NEWS 2011 Tomorrow's Stars had a busy and productive summer but we never seem to run out of things to do! September is here and soon fall will soon be upon us. Erin Janca will again bring students from Batavia High School in Illinois to visit Ghana and volunteer at the newest SABRE Kindergarten build at Ayensudo. Kathy Weir will be staying until December. George Weir will be in Ghana in November. We will all be spending time working on removing the numerous barriers to education. SABRE and Tomorrow's Stars will be spending much time with the Kindergartens at the 6 schools that participated in the teacher training this summer including giving needed supplies and starting a "Rotating Book Box" to maximize the limited numbers of books so each kindergarten always has some books in the classroom. If this idea works, it may also work on a larger level so students who do not have access to a library can still have access to books!PLEASE HELP FUND PROJECTS DONATE IF YOU CAN!
Teacher Training for 12 kindergarten teachers from 6 schools was a highlight of the summer. Erin designed and then she and Lisa facilitated the training which pointed out many of the issues the teachers face in the very critical early years and helped them overcome some. A great start to a much needed program and the teachers want MORE!
