MJHS 7th Graders Giving Back

File 000 6Walk to Water Event
On October 4, 106 MJHS 7th graders participated in the Walk to Water event raising $677 to fund school supplies for orphaned children in Rwanda.

As a wrap up to a cross-curricular study on Africa (social studies), water (science), and the novel 'A Long Walk to Water', by Linda Sue Park (language arts) students got a glimpse of what it takes to access water in parts of Africa.

Combining lessons they learned in class and hands-on (or feet-on) experience, students walked 3 miles around the track ( the average distance to water in Africa) carrying their backpacks (to simulate the weight of full containers), on a warm day right here at home. 90% of the students finished the walk, with several of them going well beyond the 3 miles as they walked with friends while they finished. Students were given beads as a way to keep track of their laps and now have a keepsake to remember the event!

Guest speaker, Allen Manning, visited the class earlier in the week to talk about the project in Rwanda. Mr. Manning plans another visit when he returns home so he can update students on the progress of the project and help all of us better understand how we can continue to make a difference right here at home! #MadisonLEADS
