Dear Parents Run for Water.pdf  

This letter was sent to all BME families on October 18th, 2017.

Our school's motto is "Leading with our heart, hands and head", and we are committed to providing our students, our leaders, the opportunity to make connections across areas of knowledge to the community and to the wider world.  Examining real-world issues, such as the need for clean drinking water in Ethiopia, makes learning more relevant and engaging.  It will be a journey of the heart for all us involved with supporting this cause.

This year BME is going to 'lead with their hearts, head, and hands' in a journey to support building wells in Ethiopia.  It will be a journey of the heart for all us involved with supporting this cause that is so desperately in need of funds to support the basic necessity of life - clean drinking water.  We hope to help our global neighbors build wells!

You might think that your contribution is just a drop of water in a vast ocean, but each drop has a

that together combines to create a movement.
