Dual language students create cards for children in Puerto Rico and Mexico
In response to the natural disasters that struck Mexico and Puerto Rico this fall, a number of students attending District 54’s English-Spanish dual language schools wrote letters and cards in Spanish which were mailed to children in communities there. The volunteer project was created because many dual-language students have family or friends in the affected areas. At Link, a parent from Puerto Rico talked with students about the hurricane and shared how much she appreciated them creating the cards. A total of 80 letters and cards were sent.
